The Big Bang

From Table Mountain we drove to another of the mountain landmarks of Cape Town: Signal Hill. Signal Hill gets its name from the  cannon that is fired every day to mark the noon hour. We arrived shortly before the hour. The visibility was poor here also, quite foggy. Today was the 65,429th firing of the cannon. Impressive and loud, but not nearly as impressive as the sight I beheld when I went to the lip of the overlook.

Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. From here you can see the soccer stadium that was constructed for the World Cup several years ago. You can also see Robben Island in the distance, where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for 18 years.
