Some parts of CT are very empty and that's were you find most offices and I was there during the week. I have to say the night life in Long Street were I was based rocks.

You owe yourself a visit there Meds, that's a stunning city and it's nature plus modernity that makes it more interesting.

Some South African forumers from Cape Town have mentioned the fact that the height restriction of the city might be amended and more taller buildings might come to place, but it's just a matter of wait and see.

Thanks Cauê even thought I believe that Durban have got more chance of hosting Olympics than CT.

Okay. Durban, Cape Town or Joburg. Three fascinating scenarios for the Olympics.

Good luck to South Africa!

I'm a Joburger but honestly, the city won't be suitable for the games. Sometime I regard a boring but that's a topic for another day.

Nice going Pule - I am happy to see that you are still practicing your photographic skills and I am glad that you had a blast of a time mate.

I have 2 questions for you:

1.
Post #22 - is that the village of Stellenbosch ?

2.
Any idea of when they are going to upgrade Cape Town's train station ? there were plans for this 5 and a half years ago before I left Cape Town. I haven't been back to the SA Forum for almost 2 years now so I have no idea as to what is happening and/or happened. Thanks Pule.

Thanks for the pics mate

Cape Town Station has been upgraded and looks good especially on the inside even though it was just a minor upgrade for the World Cup. Yes, there might have been plans 6 years ago but funding in our developing world is not easily gathered like in the developed worlds like New Zealand but hey, things are happening

I am so excited about my first full summer back in Cape Town for 10 years. The atlantic coast on summer evenings is just a dream, the sunsets last forever.
Nice photos, Pule.

Sydney, you can see Cape Town Station upgrade photos here -

Very nice pule! Visit again soon!

One thing I do appreciate about the city besides its beauty, is that it is clean

*Top Travel Magazine votes Cape Town as the Best City in Africa & Middle East
