After the Goal, ゴールの日その後 Vol.2

As many people who had gone to table mountain saying, it was beautiful place.


From the top, we got very panoramic view, north to Cederberg where I came through and south to cape peninsula.


When I took a ferry from Spain to Africa, the Atlas Mountains were overlooked from the ferry. I remembered I was filled with excitement.


Now, I am looking at mountains in the north. The sun goes up in the north as well. I've come very far away from home.


The central Cape Town.

It doesn't look Africa as I came from north. The show windows were filled up with fancy things, and seemed there were not as much rubbish Chinese and Indian goods as I've seen in other African nations.



I took the Robben Island tour one day. This island had been used as a political prison until recently.
The late, Mr. Mandela had been also exiled in this island.

ここからはRobben islandツアーに参加した。ここはかつて政治犯の刑務所として使われていて、今は亡きマンデラ氏も収監されていた。

The next day of visiting the prison was the Election Day.
Mr. Mandela became a president after he was released. He had been making his effort for reconciliation of people and improving the economy.


However, the reality of the people, especially among black that covered majority of South African, is this as you see on this photo. I took this photo when I was cycling towered the cape point. It was huge township in suburb of Cape Town.


Many people still live in bad condition; a lot of trash and smell like spoiling. South Africa is supposed to be the most advanced nation in Africa, but as long as I've seen in township, the life is still harsh.


Apartheid was over, but for those who live in township, nothing has been changed after. This is hidden situation of South Africa. For my opinion, there are a lot of things they have to work on rather than economics growth.
