Cape Town - love it!

SOUTH AFRICA | Sunday, 17 February 2008 | Views [756]

It was sad to leave the reserve and say bye to everyone such a good crowd. However Martin, Kelly and myself where going onto Cape Town so our adventure continued. First stop one night in J'burg....oh what a night!!! We arrived at Diamond Diggers backpacker at 5pm, my suggestion of having a rest before we went the bar fell on deaf ears (Kelly!!) so we commenced drinking around the bbq...5am the next morning we had just finished drinking! Highly recommend the place if you like sitting in a hot tub located in the bar (i have pics but far too embarrassing to show)...also recommend getting the barman drunk so he goes to bed and leaves you serving your own drinks! Only problem was we had to leave for the airport at 5am and our driver had stayed up drinking with us all night...however by some miracle or just plain stupidity he got us to the airport. Where Martin still pissed rammed some poor lady over with his trolley and then lost his pants whilst walking...not the best start to Cape Town all three of us arriving totally wasted.

Cape Town however refreshed us, its a great place (I know I've said that about everywhere so far but its true). The mountain is a stunning back drop to the city which is far more cosmopolitan than I imagined. So from the time we arrived and checked in our very nice backpackers we didn’t stop; so much to do and so little time. Our adventure included shark diving, wine tasting, oh and getting stuck on the mountain...read on for more.
