Fans of the I ♥ Cape Town Facebook page have come out in strong support of Table Mountain‘s bid to become one of the New7Wonders of Nature. Table Mountain is one of twenty-eight natural sites shortlisted and, with enough votes, can become one of seven sites honoured with this prestigious title.
Cape Town Tourism reminded Facebook fans yesterday that they can vote by sending an SMS with the words “TABLE” to 34874, at a cost of R2. Fans of Table Mountain living outside of South Africa can cast their vote online.
Table Mountain is currently in the bottom half of the rankings, but with the support of those who appreciate its beauty and purpose, this could soon change.
Here are some comments from Cape Town and international Facebook fans:
Kim Bindell: “Its about time! Love its beauty and all it stands for. Please vote.”
Maria Simencic: “I’m in San Diego, and I would love to see the table for myself some day.”
Sharon Playford-van Vrede: “Living thousands of miles away, I do miss the best-looking mountain in the world.”
Beverley Cantu: “Table Mountain is one of the most beautiful wonders of the world!”
Jutta Martensen: “Ich hoffe es bleibt nicht nur ein Traum da noch mal wieder hin zukommen.” (“I hope it doesn’t just remain a dream for me to go out there again.”)
