Southern Africa Adventure - Cape Town Area 
After 5 weeks of roughing it we decided that a week relaxing in Cape Town was in order.  In the middle of the city there is a striking mountain called Table Mountain.

We took a cable car up to the top of the mountain.  There are a few trails to hike up, but we were ready for some r&r..  :-)

The city of Cape Town surrounds the mountain.  Here is a view of a piece of it.

After hiking around the top for a while, we got a bit lost in the clouds..  Luckily we were able to find out way out just before it got dark..

The next day we went to an apartheid museum.  This document details how each race was defined by law.

We also took a tour of a nearby township.  Townships are makeshift towns and cities constructed by displaced and immigrant native Africans looking for work in the city.  When they get to a certain size the South African government constructs sewage, electric  and water facilities for them.

We visited Vicky's B&B during the tour. She has two rooms and operates the only B&B in a township.  Most of the proceeds of her business go toward helping the neighborhood children.
