Mesmerizing Cape Town.

Cape Town, situated on the southwestern tip of Africa is recognised as one of the most beautiful places on earth. Warmed by the African sun, Cape Town is dominated by a towering, table-shaped mountain, set on a peninsula of soaring, rocky heights and lush valleys, where two oceans converge- Indian and Atlantic. Immense natural beauty and the fast pace and bright lights of a great urban centre meld effortlessly here.

I was lucky enough to be able to visit this mesmerizing place though the stay was very short and I felt guilty for not bringing my wife and daughter along(but next time surely it will be with my family and hopefully that will be for the African Safari). I was fortunate enough to have experienced both the African sun and rain.

This is part of the hotel where I stayed.

Just look at the reflection of the blue sky.

Flowers were in full bloom everywhere.

As the rains poured we rushed for shelter and
I managed to get a few shots of the African rain.
I must say no matter where I am I love the rain.

The beautiful vineyards.

I was only able to get shots of the tamed cheetas.
Hopefully next time it will be the wild ones.

Metallic Souveinors for sale.

And my journey finally ended with the lively
African dances.As I have two left feet so I just
watched the others dance.

  6. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a nice comment. Cape Town is beautiful. I had no idea. This is what I love about blogging - you can go from a little town in the Gulf Coast area of the United States and visit other parts of the world. What a nice blog. So interesting where you visited. I am looking forward to more of your posts as I am now a follower.
