We spent the afternoon having a picnic in the park. Later the evening was a live show. The Rockets and we got to meet Cedwyn Joel. Was beautiful. Day well spent with friends.

Interesting to see in the museum how the Afrikaanse language basically was made by a few people in Paarl. And what the origins where of Afrikaans. Furthermore there are some beautiful hikes here with several levels from easy to difficult.

If you get close to Paarl, this is a must see. We loved to read the explanation of the various parts of the monuments and recognize it in the architecture.
