Nathalie’s Travel Diary

Friday, 02 Dec 2005

Location: Cape Town, South Africa

MapWe were all tired from our experiences yesterday so we allowed ourselves to sleep until 8.30am. We all wanted to go to Table Mountain, however, in the morning it seemed a bit cloudy so we all thought we might wait until later in the day. So, instead we went to the Waterfront to catch up on some Christmas shopping. (We have secret Santa’s, so we had to get presents for that as well). After lunch at The Green Dolphin, we thought we’d go home quickly to drop off our bags. Afterwards, we were on our way to Table Mountain. When we’d paid we took the elevator to go to the platform to wait for the cable car that was to take us to the top. The ride up there was really scary, because I hate heights. However, when we came to the top the most amazing view caught our eyes! You could see everything in miles’ distance – a place worth going if ever in Cape Town. Afterwards, we took a taxi to the Waterfront, where we were to meet up with Lexie & Emma (two of the students). We were going to the cinema to watch “Harry Potter & the goblet of fire”. And I must say that it’s the best Harry Potter film yet. Ross & myself laughed so hard throughout the film. It was so funny – worth getting on DVD when it’s released!!! When the film was over some of us went for dinner. We wanted to try Kingklip and so we went to a restaurant called, Ocean Basket. After dinner we were really tired and so we went back to Aardvark to get some sleep. This was to the last night in Cape Town – I have had the best trip!
