For those of you who don't know, Robben Island is the prison that the apartheid government used to house political prisoners (including Nelson Mandela). It's a world heritage site now and its such a significant part of South African history that I really think everyone needs to go and take a look.
Anyway, my mom was in Cape Town recently and she was lucky enough to take the Robben Island tour. I was suitably jealous until she bought me an awesome souvenir and offered to let me share her pics on here....thanks my mother!

|Nelson Mandela's cell - that was literally all they had|
|Not actually a person using the bathroom|
|Even the menu's were segregated!|
|The souvenir...a replica prison key!|
