      ... it and you will find it here. We also checked out the stores on the way to see what they had to offer.
      There are so many restaurants to choose from, Mexican food, Chinese food, Indian food, Pizza is very popular. Another hot place to eat is KFC, and McDonalds. We visited both.

      ... for tourism it is actually a lovely part of the city, particularly on a sunny day, with lots of street performers and a pretty great indoor food market. This is also where the ferry leaves for Robben Island, the former prison where Nelson Mandela was held. Unfortunately I wasn't able to visit due to poor weather conditions on the day that I'd booked it. Typically every day leading up to it was beautifully sunny!! It's coming into winter here but to me ...

      ... hall. The brai unit on the veranda looks like the boiler for a 1920s apartment block. There's about 30 such buildings in the complex, and a reception/shop/restaurant unit that looks like a 5 star hotel. The place was built in 1989.

      ... human beings could happen so recently. We also take the excursion out to Robben Island, even more significant with the recent passing of Nelson Mandela. The ferry trip takes around 45 minutes and reminds me why I don't like boats, the seemingly calm waters becoming much choppier once we're out of the harbour and I'm glad to get onto the island. The first part of the tour is by bus, quite well managed with everyone in groups and off to do a circuit of the island. It's ...
