Cape Town, a Great Town

... so they get paid twice. The German owner of the Beer House said no to this pitch recently and some think this was a message. The doorman was from the Congo and it could possibly be related to some of the xenophobia violence racking the country recently. But that hasn't really happened in Cape Town like it has in Durban or JoBurg.

Anyway, we haven't felt any potential threats, but we do all the usual things a tourist should do in a city ...

... clear. We pootled around the top taking in the views and chasing the local fauna around – there are two distinct types of lizard which we managed to spot despite one of them being a master of disguise, and then there are the dassies, or Hyrax in Afrikaans.

That day arriving in Cape Town was free for us, to decide what we wanted to do, so we went up Table Mountain as it was surprisingly a clear day.

We went to a local restaurant where live ...
