LIONS HEAD HIKE

Learning to love this city more and more every day!

Today I had the opportunity to hike to the top of Lions Head, which is a peak located near the more famous Table Mountain.

Getting a chance to look over the entire city was truly awe inspiring. The amount of urban sprawl and diversity is remarkable. I don’t know how else I could possibly describe it. Walking up and gradually seeing more of the city was incredible.

Getting to explore the city has been so fun, but seeing it all from above put it in such a different perspective. You can even pick out the distinctive neighborhoods from the top of the peak.

Tomorrow is my first night with my homestay family in Bo Kaap. Wish me luck on this new adventure! I will hopefully start learning more about the people and the amazing culture here.
