Capetown ... An absolute favorite!

I can't believe i haven't written anything about this gorgeous city yet. I loved it! I just did!

I came there with my vessel and had a 2 day stay there, work during the night, touring the place during the day, getting little sleep and waking up for the shift knackered, but who cares?!

We were at Duncan's dock, the thing right across those port hangars was Victoria and Alfred's waterfront, basically one of the busiest shopping/hanging out spots in the city, so as the day started with sun shining, beautiful weather and work finished, the mood was just right in the first place to go out. Lunch at a steak house at the waterfront, then the open roof tour bus all around the place, through the busy streets, famous building, historical and cultural places, muslim quarter, table mountain, the beaches. Awesome! We absolutely loved it!

Those apartments on the man made little harbors were just gorgeous, real luxury! I wonder what one of those might cost :s

Next day was dedicated for shopping and more hanging out at V&A waterfront and another great meal there. I bought a shirt that i love and wear a lot :) That's happy shopping :)

Taxis around the city reminded me of Cairo taxis though, although the prices are decent, a lot of the cars are pretty shabby, they do the purpose though, got me where i needed and back, no problem, safe and sound.

I'd love to go back there, this is definitely on my top 5 destinations so far! Beauty!
