I travelled to Cape Town the guest of SA Tourism. (OK, Ok, I know, I’ll stop rubbing it in, very soon, promise). This Cape babboon was by the road on our trip down to the Cape of Good Hope. The warning signs on the way back make interesting reading. The first sign says “Babboons”. Then by Boulders Beach, there’s a second “Penguins. Followed by the scariest of all in Simonstown: “Golfers.”
And the views down at the Cape of Good Hope are something else.
As is the panorama from the tourist classic, the top of Table Mountain.
From the cable car you get a view down into the harbour.
Back down on the ground, the old Malay Quarter, the Bo Kaap, has been beautified, but is historically important too.
There is a VERY good source for CDs of south African music, the African Music Shop at 134 Long Street, where they also sell guitars made out of Castrol GTX oil cans.
But my most frantic prepping for the Cape Town Jazz Festival was done at the Last Word boutique hotel in Constantia.
Yes Sir, I Can Bougainvillea.
