As I stood at the water’s edge and looked back towards Cape Town I tried to imagine…. imagine what it was like being a prisoner on Robben Island, a person whose crime was most likely fighting for equal rights and defending freedom. Feeling trapped and wrongly imprisoned on an island, while tensions ran high back on the mainland. The views of Table Mountain, Cape Town’s grandiose backdrop is spectacular and one not to be missed when visiting Robben Island. I could enjoy the views as a temporary spectator. If I had to see this sight every day for years before I would be allowed back on the mainland- now that might be a different story.
