    We do enjoy hearing from you all, so please click the 'comment' tab and give us some feedback. The weather here just gets better and better and the scenery in the Cape is so beautiful.

    ... sun was setting in another. And no Baz Bus ride back to Cape Town is complete without the playing of the "Welcome to Cape Town" jingle which tells you to put on your dancing shoes and enjoy that famed city by the seaside. Again, I wouldn't say it really has that traditional African music sound but instead plays more like a 1950s infomercial advertising the coconut-clad girls and swanky beach resorts of pre-Communist Cuba to wealthy Americans.
