Well It Certainly Felt Like Punishment

If there's any advice I can give you regarding Capetonian tourism, it's to give Robben Island a miss. I probably missed the point or something, but I didn't find being led through an ex-prison by an ex-prisoner particularly thrilling or insightful. It was kinda pricey too, although you do get to go on a neat boat ride I suppose.

If you do go, make sure you ask to leave the tour and check out the karamat on your own. It's a little Islamic building that looks like a miniature mosque but is actually a Muslim tomb.

Frankly I would have preferred to have stayed up on Chapman's Peak and the surrounding bays for a little longer than we got the chance to this morning. Oh well, we now know for next time I guess.
