Funicu-what?

I’ve always prided myself with having a pretty extensive vocabulary, but Cape Town threw me a curve ball. Our driver Brain (a.k.a. Brian) kept talking about riding some type of shuttle once we arrived at Cape Point—one of the must-see stops— while on our trip. He kept saying that he didn’t really know how to properly pronounce it, but that we’d see it, once we arrived. Climbing the peak would take roughly 2 hours, but riding the contraption would only take about 10 minutes. So, we paid our money, and got in line for the “shuttle.” Check out my colored commentary about the mode of transport.
