City Living

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the little apartment we are renting in Cape Town. Except...it's not a lovely, cozy B&B with a super nice host, a big bath tub to soak in, and someone to make me breakfast in the morning. I think perhaps I was getting a little spoiled by all the nice little touches in each of the places we stayed while on our road-trip portion of this trip. This apartment is definitely in the heart of a big city, and with that comes a lot of city noise at night. Including drunk people yelling at each other at 3:00 AM. Earplugs are definitely a must-have travel accessory.

Yesterday we walked to a nearby bakery and had the recommended "doughssant" - doughnut/croissant hybrid. It was filled with lemon cream, topped with raspberry sauce, and might be the single best pastry I have ever eaten in my life! We also took the Red Bus city tour, rode the cable car to the top of Table Mountain, and walked around the beautiful shopping and restaurant area of the Victoria & Alfred waterfront. Today we are doing laundry. You just never know what exciting things await from day to day when you travel!

OMG!! I found pictures of the cable car ascent. That has to be the scariest of any I've ever seen! You two are so brave! (I just woke up and that doughssant looks yummy for sure!) What a fabulous trip! xoxo
