Cape Town is so hard to put into words. I had a great trip but was a bit overwhelmed by it all. So much of it I loved; the buildings, the wine, the carrot cake and so much that I am still processing. I happily wondered the streets with no plan, taking photos of houses and flowers and all things pretty.

The afternoon after the Two Oceans we decided to stretch our legs and walk through the colourful Bo Kamp area and then headed to the waterfront.

After the run, one highlight of the trip for me was the day touring vineyards in Paarl and Stellenbosch.
|The weather changed-we moved to|
reds and enjoyed them in front of fires.

Still able to walk...so I walked some more, weather permitting.
I decided to walk (climb/run!) up Table Mountain in between showers. Not my best decision ever, as the view was not worth all the hard work. If I go back, I'll use the cable car!
|What a view!|
Another highlight was a visit to the District 6 museum - it is taking me a while to process my thoughts on this aspect of SA-so I will write more later -but the museum itself was fantastic. A church in the area now houses photos and information on District 6 and the people that lived there. Ex-residents happily share stories and experiences with tourists. A real community spirit is felt and ex-residents are encouraged to come to the cafe and use the day care centre - it is such a happy place but holds sad memories.
