When you click on the VOTE badge,you will be directed to the SA Blog Awards website. 
Your vote for my blog will automatically be entered.
IMPORTANT!

which they have to respond to in order to confirm their vote.
You can only vote for one blog per category.
Please use your vote wisely.
Should you decide to vote for another blog in the same category I will lose your original vote, 
as your  new vote will override your initial vote.



There are many of these grates in the buildings that I passed.
Perhaps they help control the damp?

"Back-in-the-day" I would have been arrested for sitting on a bench
that was clearly marked for another racial group.

Although Squirrels are not indigenous to Cape Town,
they have been here for so long that they are now seen as part of the fauna.
The statue to the squirrel sits on top of the glass case outside the museum.

Not even Rhodes wanted visitors from Gauteng.
His message..."You have seen the mountain, now go home"!

I like the colours that are used in the city centre

The new and the old?
The Hollow Hotel sits alongside an Art Deco apartment block

The wind was blowing up a storm,
but this Palm tree took the battering in its stride

Outside the Cathedral

Did the middle rust away,
or is this the actual design?

I shudder to even contemplate what can be bought at a headshop.

Locked up and gone...

The cloud formations here are different from those that I see in Johannesburg

Pointing to what is on offer?
Not unless the only thing on the menu is salt and pepper.

No matter what you think,
this mountain is truly spectacular

Many of the pedestrian crossings have these.
Drivers don't always allow pedestrians to exercise their right to cross the road

There is a lot of Urban Street Art in Cape Town.
This is not one of those works

Sometimes, looking down is a good idea

More of "The Mountain"...
a different perspective

The pressure is on.

The moon over the Arena Theatre.

"Travel & Things" was an entrant in this competition.
