Finally, we're in Cape Town.
What a totally beautiful city surrounded by mountains starting with Table Mountain, it's most famous landmark.
We drove to Cape of Good Hope yesterday and were not disappointed.
Today we're driving to Stellenboesch, the beautiful wine city near Cape Town.
... work was the death of one of our co-workers. We had never met him, but on our second day he was hit by a bus while leaving work. Our boss entered the Resource Center noticeably distracted but far from hysterical.

The other staff members in the office, while obviously upset, were equally composed. ...
If you are ever to google a picture of Cape Town you'll see table mountain. It's massive. And you can trek up it in just a few short hours...apparently. I wouldn't know - there's a cable car. It's nice though, only 13 quid for a return ticket and the floor rotates giving you a terrifying 360 degree view. We didn't hit the rock face although I'm pretty sure we were close.

TravelPod Member ReviewsdysART Cape Town
If you're like us, we wanted a quiet relaxing place to stay after our long flights, conferences and sightseeing.
DysArt is that place.
Quiet and comfortable and very hospitable, it's the perfect place to get over your 9,000 miles of jet lag and the hosts will spoil you here.
It's one of the best B&B's we've ever stayed in.
You owe yourself this treat!!
