Really looking forward to our 24 hour luxury train journey. Arrived at Johannesburg railway station what a dive not a good impression for tourists to be greeted with. We checked into the Shosholozie Meryl Premier Classe lounge at 1330 had free refreshments. Boarded the train at 1430 found our compartment cozy to say the least. Had a welcome drink and meeting and were told that our arrival time was flexible but we would arrive safely. The journey started on time dinner was served at 1900 and was very good. The train kept stopping to allow other trains pass as it is single track, but during dinner it stopped and we were informed it had broken down but help was on the way ah! ah!!! In the early hours it started again woke us up and due to the noise and movement of the train we didn't get back to sleep. The scenery was very ordinary and unexceptional but was good to relax and read. Again lots of short stops. We were informed that we were delayed by 8 hours and would arrive at midnightish, or we could transfer to a bus for a 5 hour bus journey and arrive at 1900ish. We were supposed to catch this bus at 1230 so an early lunch was ordered at 1700 we connected with the coach, arrival times were now bus 2200 train 0200. After talking to some locals we decided to stay with the train, no locals went on the bus stated the train was safer as we were on tracks and the Africans were terrible drivers. The best scenery was supposed to be exiting a very long tunnel but guess what it was dark and never saw a thing. We managed to catch a couple of hours sleep before disembarking at 0305. Fortunately our hotel was very close and we checked in at 0315 shattered. Quick shower as the train had run out of water so only a couple of toilets and no showers, then bed.

... stop was the Rhodes Memorial just outside Cape Town. It was an uphill drive, and we got out at the Memorial, the driving wind made it almost impossible to walk and/or hold the camera steady. The view was grand, and in the fading light with the wind howling around us, the memorial with its Doric columns and lions seemed all the more imposing and dramatic.
As we drove down the hill, we saw several Capetonians jogging uphill - such dedication! And again, a new image ...
... workshop situated in the funky Salt River area of Cape Town. Here he runs Braai courses specifically for men – “we have long since been denied the right to hunt; we replaced our yearning for the kill with sport, … the time has come to rekindle that pioneering spirit, to release the outlaw, to drag the underground above ground. Kitchen Cowboys will equip you for intimate dinners, brunches with family and friends, braaiing that will make ...
... in mind we headed back to the hostel and grabbed something to eat en route. Whilst we were eating we noticed our two new room mates (who were brother and sister) buying cheese and wine. When we asked them what they were doing tonight, they said they were going up to Lions Head to watch the sunset. Without giving a second thought as to whether they may be spending quality time together, I invited myself and Leona along, and grabbed a bottle of red wine before leaving. When we ...
... to round up the Indians when it was time to go to the villa. Everyone then had a siesta to make up for our early start that morning. The siesta was also a mistake as it took a while to wake all the Indians up and make them presentable. The upshot of this was we missed our one window of sunshine in the whole four days to go up Table Mountain. Oh well, we've done it before. We went up Signal Hill instead - the smaller spur that sticks out of Table Mountain to the north ...
... anchor and went in to shore. There were some very green people on the boat so I am sure they were happy as well. Overall it was a cool experience seeing 10 different sharks with 4 meters being the longest. I wish the water was clearer and could have done with less seasickness but oh well. At least I slept for the whole drive back to Cape Town.
