Free-falling

Free-falling from 3000 meters over Cape Town, this was me and Bjørn last week. 35 seconds of free-fall then a slow flight over this beautiful city. Table mountain and Lions head looked quite nice from up in the sky, it was an intense experience.

Otherwise we have had the pleasure of attending two of the Summer Sunset Concerts in Kirstenbosch. It is great during sunny afternoons on the slopes of Table Mountain, with the best music South Africa has to offer.The first was with the South African band called Beatenberg, which is worth checking out. The second time it was with the Parlotones.

Also earlier this year we had a wonderful trip to Durban. Together with Henrik, Bjørn, Kristiane, Vlora, Yasmin and Stine, I went to Durban. Here we spent time seeing the beaches and the Great White Shark, we went out with a boat and saw the shark nets that have been put up to protect from shark attacks. Kristiane and I also visited an exhibition and that related to AIDS and stigma. South Africa is believed to be the country in the world that has the most people with HIV/AIDS, and it is therefore a major health concern.
