I have an aerial photo of Cape Town, in my dining room, taken from about 5,000 feet in 1927. I have dated it from the details, the lower cableway station is visible but the upper not and it was completed in 1928. I paid ZAR 1 for it in 1976 in an auction in Wynberg. Think it might be worth a bit more now. Flash photo of it below which is rather poor I'm afraid.

In my view CPT is over-touristed and under resourced and whilst I appreciate that tourism brings much needed income to a lot of people, the locals are suffering from high prices, traffic, pollution, lack of availability of hotel rooms, reasonably priced restaurants, and a lot more. Cheap air fares and AirBnB have a lot to answer for.

I was impressed by the amount of locals that I spoke to last month who wanted to know about Brexit, especially when you consider the problems facing ZA, don’t think that my answer of “ f***ed if I know “ was very helpful :D

Whereas unlike the answers provided by the politicians, it is brief, honest, and to the point.
