Photographer's Note

Honestly, this is something I expected would happen in Lesotho if I was lucky. It didn't happen in Lesotho, but it happened at Table Mountain above Cape Town. It was snowing in Africa! Well...I'll be the first to admit it was only for 5 minutes, but at least I can say I've experienced snow in Africa!

So the white dots in the picture are the snowflakes, but the rest? The picture was taken from Table Mountain towards Camps Bay. The mountain to the right, Lion's Head, offers a magnificent view to Cape Town and its surroundings like Table Mountain.

Table Mountain was a great experience although I started the hike back 20 minutes before sunset. On the way down I got lost in the dark and ran through the bushes down to Taffelberg Road! The police didn't like the thought of me walking down to find a taxi, so they decided to drive me back to the city. But just saying, snow in Africa, totally worth it!
