Yesterday we ventured out to see the most visited tourist attraction in all of Africa (not just South Africa): The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. There are a number of ways to see it, whether you choose to drive there, walk, take the bus (as we did), sail to it, or ride a tourist boat.
Also on hand was free entertainment in the glorious South African sunshine. We took a seat and enjoyed Zip Zap Circus. Their mission is to take kids of all types (including "youth-at-risk") and giving them the resources to develop them into young leaders, good citizens, ambassordors for South Africa, and make them employable. They give them professional training, and that was clearly on display during the performance. There was tumbling, acrobats, gymnastics, juggling, and lots of clowning by the young performers. It was a lot of fun to watch.
After enjoying our tour around Bo-Kaap, we thought we would walk down to The Company's Garden. On the way we passed many other handsome buildings.
As well as all of the greenery, there were many ducks, pigeons and squirrels that drew the attention of Bereket and Eskedar.
Alas, tomorrow is our last full day in Cape Town before we rent a car and head up to stay in a little cottage on a sheep ranch in the Karoo. It doesn't have Internet. Let us all pause a moment and collectively gasp at that information. So we will try to post tomorrow so you will be sick of us and not miss us for the four days we are at Wolvekraal. Then we are off to Botlierskop Game Reserve for four days over Christmas. I'm sure we can get wifi somewhere there and fill you all in on our adventures.
Thanks for reading! (And, a very happy 65th birthday to Michelle's Auntie Shirley!!)
