After sailing for 8 days from Buenos Aires we have arrived in Cape Town. This map shows the updated itinerary for segment 3 of the World Cruise.
Cape Town viewed from our ship, with Devil’s Peak, Table Mountain, Signal Hill and Lion’s Head towering above.
On the afternoon of our arrival we took a bus to Stellenbosch, the oldest South African settlement with its lovely Dutch Cape buildings..
No live cheetahs in town, but the South African artist Dylan Lewis has many of his sculptures currently being displayed around town.
Spinning and weaving silk into beautiful creations – all out of our price range!
The Stellenbosch area is home to many vineyards (and tasty South African wines), many with buildings dating back to the early Dutch settlers.
A different kind of settlement today – Apartheid is over, but South Africa has a long way to go. Thousands upon thousands in the black population live in places such as this.
We are docked for two nights and three days in Cape Town –here the sun sets behind Lion’s Head as viewed from our ship.
