I have been tagged.....





by Naz and since I've never been tagged before I thought I'd give it a go! So here goes.....





The rule:


  • 1. Go to your photo files… select the 8th photo folder
  • 2. Select the 8th photo in that folder
  • 3. Post that photo along with the story behind it
  • 4. Then challenge 8 blogging friends to do the same.

As fate would have it, the picture I have chosen is this one!! Strangely enough, it's also a scenic pic.

It was taken one afternoon after leaving the office. I walk through the Company Gardens every afternoon to the bus terminal. I love the walk because I get my fix of the awesome sight of Table Mountain! Not that I can't see it from any other point, it's quite hard to miss, hehehe.

Being one to always have my camera in my bag, I couldn't miss the opportunity of catching a pic of this landmark in all it's glory, being covered by a 'tablecloth.' It's truly a remarkable sight to behold. A travel to the top of the mountain by cable car is a must for anyone visiting CT.

During summer one can see the car windows glistening in the sun as many people queue to take a ride on the cable car. The cable car rotates a full 360 degrees as it makes it's way to the top of the mountain. The view is mesmerizing and there's nothing like it!

These are the bloggers I am tagging:

  • Yani
  • KT
  • Shaheema
  • Tina
  • Dalilah
  • Elisa
  • Ida
  • Saya
Have fun!!

For want of something to do I was jumping from one blog to another and here I am admiring the beautiful picture of the famous Table Mountain. It has caught my eyes as it brings me back to way way back, to the 1950's when learning geography meant knowing the world and what made the surface what it is. One cannot escape reading about this great plateau of the world when you study the geography of Africa. I envy you being so familiar with he sight. I will come again even just to admire the beautiful Table Mountain.
