We start our day in the district 6 museum, where we learn more about the history of Capetown and more specifically what the apartheid did to district 6 and all of his inhabitants when it was changing from a black to a white zone.
In the afternoon we take the 'platteklip' pathway to have steep 2km hike up to the 1088m high table mountain. We enjoy the amazing view with a picknick and a glass of wineRead more
Climbing up the lions head in 5 o clock in the morning was worth it, we started with a sky full of stars and ended up with a sunrise while watching over the ocean, the table mountain and the city.
We continued on our way down to the signal hill where we had an ever better view over the city.
Our afternoon was filled with a chilled strolle along the beach.
Dinner: chinchilla at camps bayRead more
After a 19 hours flight we enjoy arrive in one of the capitals of South Africa.
We're lucky to see the south Africans winning the world cup in rugby.
We take a walking tour to learn more about he history and the 'apartheid' that just recently ended in 1994. We spoke to a man who lived in this regime as a black man and feel his struggles to accept living next to the 'white ' people as they've been suppressed by them for more than 100 years.
