Oggi prima giornata a CT! Sveglia dal nostro backpackers Atlantis veramente carino e organizzato da ragazzi carinissimi! La giornata parte con freddo e pioggia ma noi non ci scoraggiamo e decidiamo per una giornata tranquilla in giro per la città e visita a mercati e negozi locali... Nonché una visita al V&A Waterfront!

There were also lots of signs about not feeding the baboons, although we didn't see any.

At the wineries in Constantia there are signs in the bathrooms in English and ...

... but although it was beautiful it was a bit of a letdown. We spent the rest of the day here anyways. We found a nice spot on “Leisure Island,” a skinny peninsula of wealthy homes and sandy beach in the bay, for a picnic lunch. We made chicken salad with the left over braaied chicken and ate it on the bread we bought from the farm shop. It was delicious. We braaied again that night at the backpackers’. This time we did a steak with ...

... was published in letters to the editor, and come from the Daily News, Durban, December 9th, 2013:

When Mandela was released from prison in 1990, many expected that a violent and bloody uprising of revolution and retribution would quickly follow. Here are the words of Mandla Nxumalo, a young student at the time, now a museum curator: We had our weapons ready, Most of us were prepared to die fighting. We expected a war and to my great surprise, he told us to ...
