As a prerequisite for me studying abroad, the country apparently must have major tourist attractions that involve climbing for hours to see the view of what you just spent hours climbing. For example: anywhere you go in China. At all. My friend likes to say the Chinese invented the stair master.
Then there’s the triumvirate of mountains in Cape Town. Lion’s Head, Devil’s Peak, and Table Mountain. All climbed have been climbed, but I must return some day to hike the Twelve Apostles.
