The Mother City - Cape Town, RSA

On a trip to Cape Town recently, I was blessed to have 10 days to tour some pretty amazing places. I can totally see why they call it the "Mother City", and the "Cape of Good Hope." Its where all new things come to being.. 

For example; "Dr Christiaan Barnard, at Groote Schuur Hospital, Cape Town, performed the first human heart transplant in the world in 1967. He was also the first to do a heart-lung transplant in 1971". 

Or maybe; "The median age in Cape Town is 26-years-old, with almost half the population less than 24-years-old".

Its the stuff dreams are made of I tell you… There is an indescribable vide of creativity, of possibility, and even though you're exhausted from the days discovery, you get the feeling of  "I can't wait to wake up tomorrow!" Rather not sleep, this City doesn't sleep either. 

Walking up Signal Hill, jumped the barrier to climb down towards the water… Even more amazing view from here!

The V&A Waterfront: Glamorous Water front, where the Elite come to boat & shop…

South African slang words, made into wooden art.. "Howsit my Bru, Its Lekker in South Africa!"

Camps Bay Beach - Amazing sunsets over the beach

V&A Waterfront again, Ferris Wheel 

Salmon Breakfast on Kalk Bay

Walkways up the hill to some amazing dwellings

What Iv taken with me from this trip, is the realization of not knowing enough about our beautiful South Africa. We have an amazing story as a nation, and Iv made it my mission to seek out our South African story. I will post about Pietermaritzburg, we have a compelling little story here in the "sleepy hollow".
