Robben Island

While in Cape Town on our recent scrapbooking trip, we took the ferry out to Robben Island.  The wind was howling and a cold wind blew but we were just fine.
That's Robben Island off in the distance, about 7,5km's from Cape Town (I took this photo from the top of Table Mountain)






Nelson Mandela's cell for 18 years 

This is definitely a trip that every South African should make as a first hand account of part of our country's troubled history.  The visit affected us deeply, and we all agreed that we want to know more about the struggle veterans, especially Robert Sobukwe who was kept in isolation for years.
