Reisverslag Capetonian salute
1 januari 1970
Today we started off by doing a historical walking tour of Cape Town. It was 33 degrees out (not to make you people back at home jealous too much) and we saw the old colonial influence of the English and the Dutch in the buildings and society. This afternoon we went to Robben Island on the ferry which was perfect on the windy sea. Once there, we were taken on a bus around the island by a Xhosan guy with a beautiful accent, who was telling us about all the uses the island had had (leper colony in the 18th century, World War 2 military base and, of course, a prison for criminals and political prisoners like Mandela under the apartheid regime).
We had the opportunity to take typical touristy Capetonion pictures in the 5-minute (African 10 minute) break. Then we were led around the former maximum security prison by a former prisoner. His story would have been really interesting if we could understand everything he was saying.
As we're getting picked up at 08.00 tomorrow to do a day trip around the Cape Peninsula and we're doing a day trip around the Stellenbosch vineyards the day after, we decided to take it easy tonight with pizza's and chill. Just to make you even more jealous: we paid ?11.50 for two pizzas, a litre of water and tips. More info and jealous-making news to come soon!
