We arrived safely at Cape Town airport at around half 10 on Sunday morning! We were meant to meet a company to take us to our hostel however they never arrived. So some kind south African Couple who run a shuttle company offered to take us to our hostel, and we survived.
When we arrived at Carnival court it looked a bit shabby as there were massive metal gates on the outside, but once inside it was fine! We were staying in four bed dorm with a bloke called Remmy for the first night. As soon as we got into our rooms we got changed and headed straight for Table Mountain, We planned on trekking up the mountain but didn't know the route so we cheated and got the cable car up. We walked across the top for hours trying to work out how to get down, the views were amazing we could see the whole of cape town. There were some nutters abseiling down the side, we are hoping to brave it when we return to cape town in our last week. After many hours in the sunshine, slightly burnt and failing to find the route down we got the cable car back down and grabbed a taxi back to the hostel.
After a nap and shower we headed down to the bar to celebrate Charlie's birthday, a few beers turned into a few shots and Charlie's dirty pint with every spirit available at the bar. We met some really cool people and had a good laugh.
Woke up the next morning feeling slightly worse for ware but were up and out by 10 and decided to trek to the beach. Took us about 4 hours to walk from cape town to Clifton via the waterfront and we met a bloke from last night called Chris on the way who joined us for the day. Think we ended up on a gay beach as there were male couples in speedos everywhere. After sunbathing and paddling in the sea Charlie & Jade made a giant sand penis. We headed off back to cape town about half 6 and took a hilly route which took another couple of hours to get back. After such a long day we had a couple of drinks and headed to bed early because we were so knackered!
