    ... books, newspapers etc. The company is solely South African based. However, it does export to Africa at times. Overall, the tour was very interesting. I had no idea how much went into printing. For instance, the process starts of with cylinders that have the images selected slightly raised upon it.

    After a long day behind the wheel we arrive at our apartment block in the V&A. Three levels of security and we are safely parked. Two more and we are in our apartment. Airy spacious and luxurious. A long bath soothes the heat of the day and cool wine quenches parched throats.
