Verry nice room! We could see the Table mountain trough our window :)
Also we had a great bath between our bathroom and bedroom, so you could have a bath and talk with your beloved one while he was laying on the bed :p

We didn't mind, though, because the views of the city and Table Mountain from the water were spectacular, plus there were dozens of seals and a few dolphins to see, as well. When we finally got to Robben Island, they promptly herded us onto buses that took us on a 40-minute tour of some of the ...
... told me of someone who is a waiter in the restaurant. His house was on of those storage containers I mentioned, but his car was a Toyota Corolla. When we were done, the guide showed us her house. It took was very small and hidden. She has a very small kitchen with front room. A nice tv, and a large bed. Her two younger brothers live there with her, and they basically live in a cupboard that they were able to sandwich bunk beds into. She is doing very well though, I asked how ...
