Bo Kaap Cape Town

Cape Town: Bo Kaap in living colour

Imagine if you will narrow cobbled streets strung with continuous rows of low-roofed houses, sitting under an imposing mountain backdrop and bright blue skies.

A taste of Nepal // The Muglan

“Mama, let’s go to Batman Do!”  is the typically odd demand I receive from Raffles. My head is immediately full of disturbing mental images of a town populated by an army of Adam West era Batman’s. Just think of all that spandex clad paunch. Quel horreur. It would be like being forced to sit through an episode of Jersey Shore.  “If you can […] Read more…
