Observations from Cape Town

Having nearly spent a week out in Cape Town, South Africa my holiday out here is drawing to a close. The place itself is a fascinating city and very diverse; it has certainly been a learning experience. One of the most memorable parts will have been visiting a township and seeing some very primitive living conditions andpoverty, it was certainly an eye opener. This country is still very much in transition from the apartheid era; the country has made a start in healing those wounds but it still has a long way to go.

In terms of my week, Table Mountain had to be the highlight. The views from the top are amazing and it has to be one of the best natural wonders in the world.

I have a long flight back to Heathrow tomorrow and then it's back to the reality of life in London.
