We arrived yesterday after a surprisingly comfortable 12 hour flights. Getting our car required a minimum of negotiations and the driving was less stressful than expected until we had no idea of where we were. But after a quick detour we did find our accommodations. Our little house is a very nice two story terraced house with a massive bed and a really nice shower... just what we needed. Exploring was kept to a minimum but a couple of local beers in the sun and a nice dinner with a really nice bottle of South African red was just what we needed.

Today we were graced by lovely sunshine for our trip to Robben Island, where we were shown around by an incredibly entertaining tour guide and former political prisoner on the island.

The rest of the day we spend at the V&A waterfront enjoying the sunshine.

Pictures will maybe appear here one day. Btw Table Mountain is a LOT bigger and higher in real life than it looks on photos, if a description of a place says "is dominated by the view of Table Mountain" they mean it.

Until next time, enjoy! cos we definitely are, C&R.
