Stellenbosch, no Kirstenbosch

A travel blog entry by annoiatissima


Qui il tempo e' variabile come a Londra. Abbiamo lasciato SimonsTown con le nuvole, per strada abbiamo preso un po' di pioggia; temevo che non saremmo riusciti a vedere il Giardino Botanico di Stellenbosch, no e' sempre Kirstenbosch deve essermi rimasto del Sauvignon in circolo, invece il cielo si e' aperto e ne e' uscita una bella giornata di sole …

A travel blog entry by kauna


... on the tours and it breaks down like this. She makes $4 US for every person she takes on a tour (The tour cost us $6.50 to take). Our group had seven people, so on that tour she made $28. However, she does eight tours a day. So $28 X 8 = $224. There are days she makes as much as $300 USD, yet she lives in a shack. She says the work is seasonal, but she still does very well for someone who lives in a shantyown/informal settlement/favela. The other $2.50 of our ticket cost also ...
