Default Quick 3 day trip to Capetown South Africa

Just couple of shot the wife took with a point and shoot. I am thinking it is time to upgrade to a e-pen 1 or 2, or maybe a GF1. But they are almost ready for the FIFA World Cup

looks like a beautiful place to visit, with lots of interesting scenes and wildlife.

#5 and #6 are real beauties.

Thanks, it was a spur of the moment trip, been here before. Great seafood, excellent shark cage diving. And nature is in your back yard. Wife keeps saying we should move to Capetown. Thanks for looking

Actually the pay scales for Capetown is about the same as Frankfurt and NYC. And you can visit the national parks where you can go on safari. But the rest of the country still have race violent and economical issues even though SA is a first world country.

Hards,

If you like wine, the vinyard, are just outside of town, and they have some really good shrazes and merlots.

LOL

I have been to over 90 countries, and I lost count of cities after 500. And I have to admit Capetown is one of my favorites. It is in my top 20. It is a beautiful city.
