    ... We turn right, where signs indicate Table Mountain and the cable car that takes you to the top.

    Soon after we begin our easy climb up to the cable car station, we pass a copse of trees where taxi cabs and their drivers are hanging out in the shade. The cabbies are all black. After a couple of hairpin turns, we find the entire left side of the road lined with parked cars. An attendant waves us into an available space, but we tell him we’re going to continue up. ...
