A few days before Christmas, we planned this morning to do the “Pepparkakhus”. We had been cheating by asking Mormor & Morfar to buy the pieces needed to do the house. Unfortunately, they did not come all the way from Switzerland to Cape Town in one piece. No worries, gluing them together with sugar worked perfectly well. 


                                                                                                   The result!

For today’s sunset we went off for a walk up to Lion’s Head… more like a proper trekking in a beautiful landscape scenery.

Table Mountain with its Twelve Apostles.                                  Table Mountain with Cape Town below.

It was a quite rough and steep walk. Good on Mormor & Morfar to have come so far!

Lion's Head is a mountain in Cape TownSouth Africa, between Table Mountain and Signal Hill. Lion's Head peaks at 669 metres above sea level. The peak forms part of a dramatic backdrop to the city of Cape Town and is part of the Table Mountain National Park.


Looking at the top realising there’s more.



Turning around Lion’s Head,  


we have the view again North over Signal Hill.





And now comes the climbing part! Mormor & Mortar still hanging on with us.



Looking at the amazing view helps to overcome… and then the reward!


A fantastic view over Camp’s Bay and the Twelves Apostles.

The way down was pretty tricky.



As the sun set quickly, it got dark.



Really dark!
