Come down and visit us again... Dutchmen always welcome!

Hermanus was great. I just had too little time...

Mo Rush, Urban Showcase is for photographs we take ourselves. Cityscapes and Skylines is for photos from the net. Those photos you posted are nice, but in the wrong section.

Love the pics

Hey you

I just wanne say thanx for all the great pics you have posted. I myself live in cape town en ek moet se, daai oudjie van Frankryk moet regtig vir hom laat kyk. Hy is n suur mens en ek dink dat hy maar gehoop het dat Kaapstad lyk soos een van daai Afrika Lande.

Well, clearly, he was mistaken. Once again, thanx for keeping our great city name on high.

Northern Subs

I forgot to ask, please can you post some pics of Gordens Bay, the nsub like Upper Bellville, Durbanville etc. As most tourist only know of the CBD and the SSub. As we that lived in cape town has seen that the whole of the nsub has changed alot and try to get some of the nigh life in Edward Street, it kinda looks like Long street, but more Modern and its a nice place to Party aswell.

Don't be rude now nsub_guy, there are more than just Afrikaans speaking people reading this thread.

Translation for anyone who could be interested:

"I myself live in cape town and I must say that guy from France must really look out for himself. He is a sour person and I think that he had just hoped that Cape Town looks like one of those African lands."

The sunset pics I posted were taken from Welgemoed above the N1 in the Northern Suburbs. I have not got many pics of the northern suburbs, but will try to take some soon. Yes, some of those areas around TygerValley are looking mighty swanky these days. Moenie bekommer oor die Afrikaans nie. But we do keep it as English as possible to keep all internationals in the loop.

I have some photos I'll dig up and post Many are random photos snapped with my cellphone camera, but thankfully technology has advanced to the point that cellphone cameras aren't too bad anymore :P

I went on a Hike yesterday along the Woodcutter's Trail, which is situated on the Eastern side of Table Mountain near Rhode's Memorial. One often forgets that all these amazing hikes and other outdoor activities are situated right on one's doorstep and that we really truly are so blessed to live in such a beautiful city (as stated before - excuse the cellphone-camera-quality! I really should bring along my camera more...)

I have many more photos of Hermanus that I need to upload to my PC first, but here are a few I have that were on already.

Hermanus:

Birkenhead Brewery, where we had a nice lunch. It's in a town called Stanford, which is just outside of Hermanus:
