Cape Town, South Africa

The former capital of the British Cape province, now the residence of the South African parliament is a vibrant city busy with trade and tourism. At best, start with a seafood platter and a nice wine in the V&A Waterfront area, later on have a drink at a bar in the Waterkant district. The landmark on most tourist pictures is the Tablemountain - often cloudy on the top.

Originally, Company's Garden was created to grow fruit and vegetable for the ships travelling between India and Europe. Now it is located in the middle of Cape Town and provides a safe and nice environment to relax from the city noise.

The V&A Waterfront combines the athmosphere of a commercial port with fine restaurants and tourist shops. It is also the starting point for the ferry to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for many years, separated from the city lights by the cold Atlantic ocean.
