Cape Town, South Africa

Hi everyone! I'm in South Africa! i hope you are all well and feeling good.

It's really beautiful here! We have enjoyed a city tour as well as a tour of the winelands :) we drank 17 different kinds of wine, and were a little tipsy coming back to our hotel. thank goodness for some excellent tour guides who know everything about this amazing place!

there's some delicious food and an amazingly large shopping centre on the V&A waterfront, which is where i'm writing this to you from...

there's a million different roadworks and building works being done for next years 2010 world cup that's taking place here. it makes getting a taxi twice as expensive (though it's still cheap) because of the number of diversions.

anyway, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch were really beautiful, with amazing architecture and the surrounding mountains are a stunning backdrop.

anyway, the style here is very european, and this mall has a havaianas shop that i'm just about to go and raid. those turqouise flip flops will be mine.

the picture is taken from the pretty bo kaap area, and you can see half of table mountain on the right...
