Day 4 was my attempt at going up Lion’s Head Mountain. (Failed!) But I did get some lovely pictures. Later, I caught the sunset from Signal Hill, went to dinner at the waterfront, and then dancing at a club (Club 31) which sits on the 31st floor of the ABSA building with amazing views of the city.
On my third day in Africa, I visited Kirstenbosch Gardens which reminded me of Longwood Gardens at home. I took the guided shuttle tour which was a great way to see the whole of the grounds, after which I walked about on my own. Looking at the flowers and the birds, I was struck by how much of the aesthetic that I normally associate with various Africa art is mirrored in the landscape, flora, and fauna of the region.
