South Africa is beautiful! We have just moved to the Western Cape from Johannesburg, on the south peninsular, and I must admit, the Cape is the best! We know we are priviliged to live here, what a wonderful environment for our children to grow up in. Whoever wants to come to Cape Town, do so, it is worth your while, you will not regret it and I know you will want to keep coming back. Hope to see you all soon. <Fish Hoek>

Awesome imagery! Fills in the void between "from an airplane" height and "from a satellite" height. I agree with the other commenters, I loved the Cape when I visited in 2001. I'm from San Francisco and it felt like home (temperate climate, mixed culture, and a wine country 50km away!).
