This very dark-I-should've tweaked-the-contrast-photo, is Cape Town city bowl from my mother's apartment at 5:30am.
Why I was up so early is beyond me (very out of character). Up ahead is Table Mountain, behind that, to the right, the sea, and right up front, Union Street.

And not a sound. THis place starts it's weekend on Wednesday afternoon. Joburgers start theirs on Sunday. Apples and oranges.

Pretty.

I've got a couple of those too from when I was there. We went to some place in Campers Bay, I remember it was a Sunday. Beautiful women for a Sunday evening.

Camps Bay is lovely, there is no doubt. And CT is known for its beautiful women, definitely.

Were you there on holiday?

Janie - it really is great. Apparently, this year, it was voted top five places to visit alongside Paris, Rio, etc. Was very proud!

Every now and then we see Oprah, which is big celeb stuff for us there. She actually stays in the Mount Nelson hotel, which is opposite my mum's place. She comes to CT a couple of times a year.
