A hike up Table Mountain
On sunday a few friends and I hiked up Table Mountain in Cape Town. It's approximately 1086 meters high, and its top more or less resembles a table, hence the name "Table Mountain". The afrikaans name is Tafelberg. Ons het die Tafelberg geloop en dit was a groot plesier! To anyone going to Cape Town I really recommend this hike, the view is amazing. You'll spend about 1.5 hours to 2.5 hours reaching the top, depending on your physical fitness (I used 1.5 hours, so that means I'm ready for a bigger mountain now, obviously. Hehe).
The following picture is of Robben Island, the island where Nelson Mandela was a prisoner.
