      go ahead and add it to your “wish list”… it’s definitely a great place to visit… Cape Town is one of the most cosmopolitan cities I’ve been to, and as a bonus, you get to visit Robben Island (where Mandela and other activists were keep recluse), the wine country, and table top mountain… 😮 thanks for stopping by!

    I was lucky to visit Cape Town on a business trip. Table Mountain was closed because of the weather but the travel firm gave us pagers just in case. We got the all important page and managed to get an hour on the top before the weather closed in again
