I didn't realize how easy it is to get around without a car. I would like to use public transport in future. It's hard to recognize the city from a different point of view. I find it very interesting. I like it that the train travels very quickly. I like looking out of the window. Now I would like to travel on the train or the bus when I have the chance. It is interesting to watch the people when you are passing by. They don't really pay attention to the train, but we can see them. We can see their homes and their lives. It is quite amazing.
My journey started with a look at some graffiti which emphasized the value of difference. We waited a little while at the station, but our journey down to Simons Town was vibrant and fun. We had children in the compartment, and a man who seemed to fall in love en route, and promised a woman he would give her red roses, the very next time he came to Kennilworth. Some tourists were on the train. We got to see the different buildings of the city, different in style as the city spread out. The best part though was coming back at sunset, and watching the sky turn deep blue over the sea. At the station, some people sang a UB40 song "there's a rat in the kitchen..." By the time we got home, it was completely dark, but it got warmer as we traveled away from the sea air. I loved this journey.
