Home again

Well, we’re home again, in one piece, and I’ll get round to writing up the full report at some point – though it could take a while, as I made notes while we were away and it will probably run to several thousand words!! But to sum up, we had a fantastic few days in Cape Town – Table Mountain was amazing with fantastic views (and I found a BookCrossing book up there!), we spent time at the V&A Waterfront and in the Two Oceans Aquarium, we went on a township tour which was fascinating and depressing and inspiring all at once, and had our trip to Robben Island cancelled because of gale force winds. We also had to miss out on going to the District Six museum, which was really sad as it was one of the things I was really looking forward to, but I made the mistake of booking our trip on Easter Monday and it was shut!!! We did a day’s tour of the winelands and another day going down the peninsula, which is really beautiful even at this time of year. Then we rounded off the holiday with a rescheduled trip to Robben Island which was really good, though we didn’t have nearly enough time there – in A Section there was an exhibition of memoirs and artefacts left by the ex-political prisioners and we only got ten minutes there but could easily have spent an hour wandering round. But all in all a fantastic holiday all round, crocodile notwithstanding!! And now back to the reality of life …
