... massive, primarily made up of fynbos which looks similar to an English heath. Although we saw a few hardy cyclists in the park, the vast majority of visitors drive between the two main points of interest, namely Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope itself.

... wondered how someone living in such squalor could manage to have such a beautifully pressed shirt.   Gladstone was keen to take us to a Shebeen, an illegal pub making it's own brew.  We entered a wooden single room enclosure consumed with smoke from the open fire.
