Where I stayed
We went to the V&A waterfront instead. It is really nice down there. Loads of street performers, bands playing and dancers so there is a really nice atmosphere. A real buzz. There are lots of very nice restaurants so we had a nice lunch sat outside overlooking the water. I saw a couple of seals swimming about in the harbour which was lovely.
Most of the other volunteers are doing a road trip this weekend along the garden route as they want to do a bungee jump
So I will try for Robben Island again and if not then Paul (one of the other older volunteers who has also passed on the road trip!) and I will get the train to Simons Town and go to Boulder Beach to see the penguin colonies there. The weather has been much better since Sunday so hopefully Robben Island will be possible. Hopefully the trains will be running, there is a strike here and they were all out of service yesterday!
I am off school today. The other volunteers were all full of cold last week and sore throats and I thought I had avoided it but yesterday I woke up with a gravelly throat and by the middle of the day all my leg muscles felt really tired and I spent all last night shivering as I felt freezing. I do feel a bit better today but have got some flu remedy today and am just going to take a day out to try and get fully better. All the kids have runny noses and cough all over you all the time so going to school wouldn't help the situation I don't think!!!
Oh well off to take the S African version of lemsip!
