Feb. 23 and 24th
We’ve run into Wendy and Adeline a few times. Once they snuck up on us and scared the pants off us so we got them back when we spotted them on Signal hill. HA! They won though as the next time they spotted us in the Green market, they jumped us and got us good. Goof balls!
Robben (dutch for seal) Island is an interesting tour though they took us through so fast it was hard to digest it all. Nelson Mandela was jailed here for 18 of the 27 years he spent in prison. We learned about many other activists who protested Apartheid. Not all survived. They’re a testament to standing up for what is right.
We did a harbour tour and a sunset bus tour to Signal hill as well. Those were included in the hop on, hop off bus deal. That’s a bargain and anyone visiting Cape Town should do it.
Arranging future travel is a lot harder than we thought it would be. Despite it being shoulder season, many hostels are booked up and we have to work around the Baz bus schedule. Taking a tour is MUCH easier but this had it’s benefits. It’s a slower pace of travel and we’ve got time.
We even took some time to go for a pedicure! What a treat! Minkie got a month’s worth of nastiness off my feet, got rid of all the cracks and callouses, gave me a wonderful massage and made my toes look pretty…..all for $20. My feet were MUCH happier. 😀
