Day 11, Cape Town- a perfect day in the low to mid 70’s. The view in the photo is towards our church and there is just a peek of our apartment to the left of the spire.
We had talked about getting some Dental work done while in Cape Town, so this morning I called and made appointments for both of us. South Africa has up to date medical care at a fraction of the cost in the US. For example, a Crown is $468 USD. Quite a bargain compared to the home. And since my dentist retired rather suddenly due to health issues, I decided to go ahead and finish up the work needed here.
It’s been a day of exploring around town, shopping and beard trimming. We are feeling very settled into the city and are more comfortable everyday.
Had to ask the barbershop owner about the poster on the right. It’s from the 70’s and says, “I’d walk for miles for some curls”.
Below left is the lighthouse that was built to guide ships entering the original harbor. It wasn’t enough….The photo to the right is of the back of Lionshead Mountain. Pete has been showing me pictures of trails, trying to convince me its an easy climb. Hmmmm…not sure I believe it.
Tomorrow we ferry out to Robbens Island where Nelson Mandela was held for 18 of his 27 years in prison.
