From Atop A Table!
Another early morning today! We picked up the team and were off to Table Mountain. There we hiked up the trail and it was a lovely day. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. The hour and a half hike was well worth it when we reached the top. The view was breathtaking. We saw all of Cape Town from this viewpoint; it’s honestly such a beautiful city. We caught the cable car to go down. The cable car was much like the one on the Grouse Grind except way better because the floor spun in a circle so everyone could get the full 360o view. Later we went to downtown Cape Town. We split into groups and did some shopping. Many of us went to the Pan African Market; this is where we found the best souvenirs! Another great place for bargains is Green Market Square. We gathered at Ms Ferris’ sister’s house, and we enjoyed dinner with the team and all of our home stay families. Currently I am packing and getting ready for our final wrap debrief tomorrow. I’m so shocked that we are leaving tomorrow. Even though it’s been three weeks, it feels like we have only just arrived. It hasn’t hit me yet that tomorrow we have to leave South Africa. I’m hoping to have a fun and memorable last night with my team and home stays.
