My Time Capsule: South Africa: Beautiful Cape Town


South Africa: Beautiful Cape Town

South Africa, December 2010

My South Africa journey came to an end, the last destination was Cape Town.
It's been said to be one of world's most beautiful cities, which I totally agree. I was instantly fall in love with this city. Cape Town is uniquely beautiful, it’s home to colourful characters from a cross-section of cultures and it has a fascinating history.
With the breathtaking view of Table Mountain which is towering 1085 metres above the city of Cape Town, Table Mountain is often covered with cloud known as the table cloth. This is how Table Mountain got its name.

colourful toilet

huge portion of seafood platter for each person
After lunch we visited Boulder Beach which is very popular due to its inhabitants, a colony of some 3000 African Jackass penguins, a pair of penguins were first spotted at Foxy Beach in 1982 and the colony has steadily grown ever since.
They are very adorable creature, but nearby residents suffered as the birds invaded their gardens and were generally very noisy and messy.
Boulders still remains the only place in the world where people can actually swim amongst the penguins as they have continued to invade more beaches. They are remarkably untroubled by people but you should avoid harassing them by getting too close or chasing them. They have a vicious bite !!!

South Africa was definitely one of my best trips. It's truly an amazing country where I experienced such great times there. From my dream Africa safari, had ox testicle for dinner and straddled an ostrich. I would really love to stay longer next time, to explore more its beautiful places.
I would not say "good bye".......I would rather say "till we meet again"!
