ANOTHER ZEBRA/KWAGGA IN THE COMPANY GARDENS

Desolate streets are the usual phenomenon in Cape Town city centre on a Sunday…however, due to the soccer world cup, the city is currently vibrant and visually exciting. A Sunday walk from Green Point to the National Gallery in the Company Gardens proved to be a delightful and enriching experience. Everything spotlessly clean and lots of metro police ambling around made for a sense of security and aesthetic pleasure. May it continue after the 11th July!
