Cape Town Lookbook: A Lifetime Jewel

The melting pot of the city showcases Cape Town’s vibrant culture, history, pride, and spirit of the people.

I first discovered Cape Town while visiting my wife’s family back in 2002. It is an amazing city with tall rugged mountains coming straight down to meet the beautiful coastline, the city bowls, CBD (Central Business District) meeting the townships, and the amazing flora and fauna!

But most of all, the melting pot of the city showcases Cape Town’s vibrant culture, history, pride, and spirit of the people. When I go back I look forward most to braais (South African male pride in their grill skills) at the home of family and friends, interesting culinary experiences, beach days, adventures, long and lazy days in the already established yet always up-and-coming wine lands.

It always inspires me to see a South Africa that is thriving, against the odds, since the end of apartheid. It continues to lead the world, showing what determination and positive attitude can accomplish, given the contrast seen all too often across the rest of Africa. Enjoy the photos, but more importantly, visit this once in a lifetime jewel!
