What on earth must Jan van Riebeeck have thought back on 6 April 1652 as he first caught site of that great , grand old lady called Table Mountain. Let’s not beat around the bush here – Jan V was quite a hard bugger. Keel-hauling the odd sailor across Table Bay was quite the norm for our Jan you know. But surely he must have dropped his sniffing tobacco overboard as the Table Cloth just kept on rolling down and down and down. Of course, the problem Jan would have had was the distinct lack of a cable car. Which Jon and Joanne and myself did have. So we used it to our benefit and last Thursday, summited in just generic cymbalta making me sick over 5 minutes flat (revolving cable car floor and all). Most of us Capetonians have been up and down the mountain quite a few times in our lives. But I kid you not, last Thursday offered us the absolute finest and most spectacular views I have ever witnessed from above the city. It was almost as if God had said: ‘Tell you what chaps, it’s you’re engagement shoot so I’ll give you an early Valentine’s Day present and make sure everything is laid on just perfectly.’ In fact, I’m convinced that’s what happened. So Jon and Jo, Happy Valentine’s Day and see you in two weeks time for that there them wedding in Stellenbosch.
