Pamo remarked on the landscape photos I sometimes post, so I thought I’d depart from my usual incisive commentary on nothing-in-particular and play tour guide today instead.
Lots of people think that Cape Town is the Southern-most part of Africa. Go on, admit it: you did, didn’t you? It is, in fact slightly to the West, and the area that I live in is known as the Southern Cape, with Cape Aughulas being the Southern-most point of Africa.
The province is known as the Western Cape, so I live in the south-eastern area of the Western Cape, just West of the Eastern Cape province. Are you getting all this down? Don’t get lost or you’ll end up in Australia.
The ‘Garden Route’ (another name for the Southern Cape which is in the Western Cape, but only West in that it is West of the Eastern Cape), named for its garden-like beauty, is rather sparsely populated and George (my nearest town) is the largest in the area. Town, though good for shopping, is probably the least interesting of the things to be seen here. The best thing is space, tons of space and unspoiled, uncrowded natural beauty at every turn. (no silly, not me, although I’m pretty gorgeous, really).
For veracity's sake, I haven't posted any picture taken more than 20km from home. Innit luvverly?
