On Wednesday we took a boat trip across the bay to Robben Island.
We were met at the dock and initially enjoyed a bus trip around the Island through the prison officers’ living quarters and various prison secure areas.
The final part of the trip was on foot through the high security prison block. Our tour guide, for this part of the tour, was an ex political prisoner. He was very interesting.
And finally, Mr Mandela’s cell.
Very bare. They had beds from the 80’s
