Out on a ledge
Today is a public holiday in South Africa: Human Rights Day - the anniversary of the massacre of innocent people at Sharpeville in 21 March 1960. We celebrated our freedom from the shackles of apartheid by hiking up Table Mountain with our son who is visiting us from the big bad city of Johannesburg. He is off to Brazil soon to do a hike for Save the Children and was looking for an excuse to break in a new pair of hiking shoes. Here he is at the top of Kasteelspoort - one of the best ways to get up Table Mountain. He looks like he is hitchhiking to a far galaxy! Far below is a rather foggy Camps Bay.
