Cape Town,
18th to 19th October 2007

As always my trip to the beautiful city of Cape Town was too brief - with the dominating Table Mountain looking as it would have in 1652.

The views  valleys, crags and winefields remains an entrancing attraction  places like Boschendal and Franschhoek just too beautiful for words! The traffic here, like Johannesbug, is a real problem now with roads deteriorating and slow trucks clogging up the highways that used to be super-fast.

The highlight was the Spier launch - meeting Alan and Cecil le Fleur again as well as the coverage by SATVs 50/50 of this event.
