1. Being as chill as a “Capetonian”
Wearing the “Slaapstad” nickname proudly, you made plans by saying, “I’ll be there just now,” which could have meant 20 minutes or 3 hours. And even if you never actually liked walking around barefoot, it was good to know you had the option.
2. Lions Head
There was no feeling better than summiting that 332-metre climb, after doubting whether you’d make it to the top at all. With your pulse still pounding in your ears from that demanding last stretch, it’s like you’d escaped the city without really leaving it. Confronted with panoramic views of the City Bowl, Green Point, Camps Bay, the Twelve Apostles and of course, Table Mountain, you have the mandatory Facebook proof of all the times you actually made it.
