The cable car took us to the top. Wowwwwwww!!!!!! the floors were rotating as well. This was amazing!!!!!!!! The view, the "tiny" cable that the cable car used was mind-blowing to me. I was super excited. It was cold and extremely breezy at the top. I ensured to take pictures.

We then headed to Cape point and Boulder Penguins at Boulder park. We ate lunch and I finally tried the infamous "King Clip" fish. It was one of the most amazing dishes I ever had.

We'll ...

I have been few places in my life, but Cape Point and The Cape of Good Hope must be the most beautiful places on Earth. I never knew of the views and just natural wildlife there. In one spot we saw antelope, baboons, ostrich, penguins (Boulder's Beach), and some rodent that apparently is part of the elephant family. The pictures do not do these two places any justice and the whole time I was there I felt as if I was in ...

I was very excited about the methodology of experiential learning that creates an intimate relationship between the school and the community around it. After the lecture, we had lunch and went to see some of the townships. We stopped first at Kensington, where we met Karin who is the head of the SHAWCO campus in that township. At ...
