Cape Town, the mother city of South Africa

Monday, January 4th, 2010

If ever there is a city to work, study and live in it’s got to be Cape Town. It’s the most beautiful city in the whole of Africa and competes with the best in the world as shown by awards that the city has won in the past. I just love living and working here where you wake up to the most beautiful mountain surrounded by the ocean and in just about 30 minutes you can find yourself surrounded by beautiful game in the most spectacular game reserves. The 2010 legacy of upgrades on our roads infrastructure will even fuel the city to be the best in terms of public transport. There is no where in the world i would love to live in than Cape Town it’s simply the best.

I Love Cape Town

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Choosing to live in a city that you love is an entirely different affair from visiting a city for the first time and falling in love with it. The difference lies in a knowing of the landscape, like the lines of a loved one’s face.

Cape Town is a cosmopolitan world city, offering first class business and leisure infrastructure. Look closer, feel more and you’ll see and hear a uniquely African rhythm from the marimba bands in the V&A Waterfront to the colourful houses and call to prayer in the Bo-Kaap. The term fusion speaks of our past by telling of a history of colonialism and our present as people who use these influences to innovate and celebrate our unique creativity. Experience South African cuisine with a French influence, Cape Dutch architecture or South African jazz music. Let street art or a classical masterpiece turn your head, the divide between rich and poor open your eyes and a melting pot of cultures steal your heart.
