Going to Table mountain
Today I try to explore Cape Town a bit. Just everywhere a little bit. How do you do that? Hop on the sight seeing bus for RD120 and it take you all over Cape Town. If you want to stay somewhere longer, just jump off and catch another one when you are finished. I jumped on at Sea-point and stayed on the bus till we reached Table mountain. The weather was not so good but I decided to go anyway. Bought a 2-way ticket with the cable car and got to the top. I met 2 Vietnamese boys who wanted to know where I am from. I saw also 2 girls ready to go down on a rope. They didn't want to go anymore, because they had to wait a while and both were very very cold. I guess it was just 2-5 degrees C. And with a little bit wind it felt like it was freezing. Clouds were coming and going so I could take a few pictures.
A big Zakumi.
2 couples from the USA offered to take a picture of me on top. In return I took there picture. I walked around for another half hour and started to get cold. I was looking for a few animals on top, but too bad, nothing found. But I stay for another 2 weeks here. There will be another opportunity to go up with a clear sunny sky.

So down again and on the bus. We drove along camps bay and when we arrived at Sea point I didn't get off. I took the stop at V&A Waterfront to have something to eat and watch the soccer games. There are so many screens there, and still there were places where you had to pay to watch the games. Strange that almost nobody was there.
I looked at restaurants where I could possible have diner the next weeks and walked over the Swing bridge to see the famous Clock tower. There is a lot more to see and I walked to the Wheel of excellence. There were not many people there. I keep this attraction in mind. Have to get in at at bright sunny daylight, and also in the dark to see the lights of Cape town. After seeing this I walked 2,5 km back to my guest house along the beach.
