Where I stayed
I have asked if BA can transfer me to another airline then due to the fact they would be putting me out of pocket so I'll see what they say later on.
Stupid BA staff are killing BA
Rant over... will keep you updated as soon as I know.....
On a brighter note I visited the actual harbour area of Hout Bay in my last few days and visited Duiker Island which has a massive seal colony. It was really cool to see the seals, they are so cute. I had a good rummage around the market at the harbour where you can barter for goods but didn't see anything I fancied there, although there is a very nice craft store there with some nice things. It was a bit over my budget for the nicer items but well worth a visit. The bay also has a lovely sandy beach and lots of seafood restaurants so a good place to go for a lunch time visit out of Cape Town.
That afternoon I went back to the homework club as I got a lift to Hout Bay from Kevin as it is near the school so I got a lift back as well for my own convenience. It was nice being back at the homework club and I actually really missed it and the school in my last week
On my last night we all went for a meal at Cafe Africa. It was fab! There is a set menu in operation and you get given either 14 or 18 different dishes of food. The waiting staff tell you what each dish is and if you like it and want more then you get as much as you want. There was a soup entree followed my several starters, mains and a dessert. Half way through the meal the staff put on a show by entertaining the diners with music
Souvenirs found and a great last night I am definitely all set for Canada.
My top picks of Cape Town:
Mustang Internet Cafe at Kloofnek- ridiculously cheap, can skype, scan and fax as well as internet and it is licensed. They have camera on the computers for skype and each desk has 3 USB ports so you can charge your phone etc as well which is really handy when you're backpacking
Cafe Africa- as above, fantastic night out.
Cape2Cuba, Long St. Really nice cocktail bar which is the equivalent of 3 quid per cocktail! Loads to choose from and it's really chilled out with nice staff.
Dubliners, Long St- night club with a mix of live music and DJ. Plays all the classic cheesy tunes. Great atmosphere and a really good laugh. Has a bouncer who kicks anyone out at the slightest inkling of trouble so totally safe as well.
Table Mountain- you have to climb this if you go to Cape Town!
Cape Point drive- you only need a day and the scenery is stunning. If you're not comfortable driving then hire a taxi as we did. Speaking of which Ricky's taxi's are the best by miles. Take in Boulder Bay along the way and see the penguins.
Lions Head peak- I didn't do this but my fellow volunteers did and they all loved it. Great views and there are is a collection of ropes and pulleys that you need to navigate to get to the top which is good fun!
