Cape Town Breakaway!

Had an amazing time in Cape Town with my sister Lerissa! It really is one of the most beautiful cities in our country! Friendly people, breathtaking sites, gorgeous beaches (and people!). We took the tour on the Red and Blue tour busses, and it really was worth every cent! The Kirstenbosche Gardens boasted fresh, green and beautiful well-kept foliage, pretty streams and many feathery creatures. The World of Birds, the aquarium, the planetarium, and the MANY  museums we went to see were an absolute pleasure to visit! The Jewish Museum really touched my heart with the many stories and videos depicting the hardships and lives of the people who suffered prejudices. Such amazing heartfelt stories, including that of the famous Anne Frank! I was also extremely impressed with the churches, with their exquisite interior and exterior designs. This was one of the most eye-opening and fun trips I have ever been on! We walked A LOT! We took trains and busses (which are SO cheap!) and enjoyed every moment of it! :)
