Caution …Bicycles !
I would have never thought about it-bicycles. Here they move faster than cars and being from a city of cars I am not prepared! They are fast and have priority and I need a swivel neck to stay alive!
Why a great day touring by bus and boat.
There’s plenty more to see when we get back at the end of the month.
Saturday morning was a different story.we got a taxi to the airport, checked in,boarded, and got settled in our seats. An hour later we still hadn’t taken off. The engines idled and we waited. The pilot announced that there was a scratch on the skin of the plane . Then there was refueling. A few minutes later we were asked to get off the plane and go to another gate that seemed miles away. This is Schiphol of course. Now we await buses to take us to our next plane. It’s 2 hours past our last boarding! Cape Town here we come maybe!!!
Saturday we went up Table Mountain on the cable car. That was an experience because it was unusually clear . After that we went to Robben Island South Africa’s symbol of Apartheid and the struggle for freedom. I did see Nelson Mandela’s tiny cell. The sea is rough and there was no chance of escaping across the 10 kilometres of dangerous water.
Sunday we toured Cape Hope and saw where the Indian Ocean meets the Atlantic. And we saw tons of penguins!!!
Today the wineries around Capetown town occupied our time!
