Tuesdays Are For Traveling

The lush lawns of the Mount Nelson Hotel
In 2010 my husband and I visited Cape Town on the first leg of the South African Segment of our four month world tour. We thought the port of Cape Town would be an interesting place to visit on our way up to Port Elizabeth where we had booked a safari. Cape Town has interesting history, beautiful beaches, and also a new soccer stadium that was readying for the World Cup matches that year. We visited the barren Sixth District left as is as a memorial to apartheid, and later had High Tea at the famous Mount Nelson Hotel that has guested the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela and years of dignitaries and celebrities (as well as ‘peons’ like my husband and I)
