Last Days in CT

As my trip came to end, I did as many activities as I could.

Firstly, there was Boulders Beach which had stunning views and African Penguins.

I also took a trip to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela spent 16 years of a 26 year sentence. It was great, because one of our tour guides was an ex-prisoner who had served for his efforts during the apartheid era. He was very humble and did not hold any bad feelings towards the ex-guards and people that had abused him during his time at Robben Island.

I also visited Cape Point, the most south-westerly part of the African continent, with the group of 50 Connecters that were in Cape Town at the time. It had some of the most stunning views I have every seen.

I also went on an ostrich tour and got to feed and ride a few ostriches a few miles outside of the city. Ostriches are some of the most weird looking animals I have ever encountered. But I did have a fun time.
