Now, before this holiday the only people we knew who caught cable cars were Lady Penelope, Tin-Tin and Parker.
Here they are on their way up to the Paradise Peaks Hotel.
The Cass Carnaby Five were in residence playing their smash hit “Dangerous Game” to an enraptured audience. “Isn’t he gorgeous!” says Tin-Tin (hose yourself down, Tin-Tin).
But I digress.
This is the view from the top. From the bottom it looked scary enough to give us second thoughts but I got chatting to a yank who told me how great it was. The fact that he was a US Navy submariner should have sounded a warning I guess.
And here is our Thunderbirds cable car again of course. It was built in the 1960s and upgraded in the 80s. It is one of the ones where there are no towers the whole way up, just a cable and two cars, one of which goes up while the other goes down, pulled by smaller cables.
