Flag of South Africa  , Western Cape,

We spent two nights in Cape Town with Mum and Dad at the Victoria and Alfred Hotel which had great views of the harbor and Table mountain. The four of us then spent a day at Camps Bay beach before we said our goodbye's.

It was very sad saying goodbye to Mum and Dad, but what was almost worse was saying goodbye to the lifestyle Dad had treated us to while he was visiting!

It was a great holiday and we are both hoping they come out again.

We planned to stay another three nights in Cape Town, and Margarida (From Maputo) had very kindly put us in touch with her friend in Cape Town, Virginia.

Virginia offered her house as a place to stay and was extremely kind to us, making us breakfast each morning and cooking us dinner in the evening. She would drop us off where we wanted on her way to work and would pick us up when she returned. When Virginia was not working or cooking for us, she would be driving us round the city explaining each of the different areas and pointing out the various landmarks. She was a very kind lady.

After three nights with Virgina and a hike to the top of Table mountain (much taller than it looks from the bottom) we said goodbye to Africa, and took a flight to Dubai before catching another to Mumbai.
