Hi friends!!!

This time we visit Cape Town. Do you know what is the most interessting atraction there?? Table Mountain.

When you visit Cape Town you'll see a huge slab of sandstone, 1086m high and 3km long, smack in the middle of town; that is Table Mountain. Table Mountain's top is often shrouded in clouds commonly known as the mountain's "tablecloth". The mountain is home to more than 1400 unique species of plants as well several mammals and over 100 invertebrates. The views of Cape Town and its coastline from the top are spectacular (if the mountain doesn't have it's tablecloth). You can even see Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years. There are cable cars to get you to the top but if you're fit it's worth attempting the 3 hour climb up one of the many trails. If you are interested in paragliding down you can do that too. There's a restaurant and a souvenir shop at the top of Table Mountain for your convenience.
Note: The cable cars do not operate when there are strong winds (which is fairly frequently). If the mist comes down while you're at the top of the mountain a horn will go off as a warning. If you hear the horn make your way to the cable cars to get down safely.

So, do you think that this place is the right place for your holiday? Check it out!

Bye, bye!!!
