Cape Town - Part 2

A Playground in Cape Town
Ein Spielplatz in Kapstadt

De Waal Park is one of Cape Town's heritage sites. It was opened to the public in 1895. Today it's a popular park for dog walkers, children, picnickers, runners and more. Because of the dogs, you have to be careful not to walk in any poop. That's not very pleasant. It's also a place where the homeless come to take a nap. We had to use the public toilets and surprisingly, those were very clean. Who gets to play on a playground with Table Mountain as your backdrop? It's pretty cool, isn't it?

English: Welcome
Xhosa: Wamkelekile
Afrikaans: Welkom

Quote on the Bench

Afrikaans: Moenie slaap nie. Kyk! Agter die gordyne begin die dag dans met 'n pouveer in sy hoed.

English: Don't sleep. Look! Behind the curtains, the day begins to dance with a peacock feather in its hat.
