On the first five days of our tour we were not on safari, but rather were sight seeing in Cape Town and surrounding areas.
We took a cable car to the top of Table Mountain. It is on the list of the new Seven Natural Wonders of the World, a fact of which the Africans are very proud.
We passed through the Moorish Maly Quarter of Cape Town with its fantastically colored homes, a color lover's dream. Each resident can choose any color they want and the choices were amazing. This area covers several blocks. The next evening we had a home-hosted dinner in one of them, painted a luscious shade of raspberry.
We went to an African Restaurant for dinner one night and took part in a drumming lesson. It was a lot of fun, but there was no way to take pictures and drum at the same time. Then we partook of a delicious meal with many different African specialties. Our beautiful servers all had their faces painted with traditional designs and offered to paint ours, too. Of course we said, yes, but somehow it didn't translate onto old wrinkled faces as it did on their smooth young skin.
Come back and Ill share some more.
