If  you have enjoyed my daily photo updates I would love to hear it but now I need to take a break from blogging ...

I wish you all an awesome time in South Africa. I know you will love every minute of it but please stay safe and well, always keep your wits about when you are outside
 Remember I have been recording and taking photos of Green Point and surroundings for over a year and almost always wandering around on my own , even after dark, so don't be paranoid, just always be aware of your surroundings and what is going on and don't do silly things

I have met many nice people on my hunt for photos,who would engage me in conversation, curious at what I was doing ..often wanting me to take their photo, only very occasionally did I need to run for my car
And please drop me a line when you are back home, to tell me how your trip was, I would really love to hear your stories and I will of course always reply

  6. Joanne - I am finally back in NZ after a great World Cup 2010 trip to Africa. We had an awesome time everywhere we went in South Africa, not even a hint of danger or trouble, don't know what all the fuss was about.

    We had a great time in Cape Town, a very cool and relaxed city that I would love to visit again sometime. I posted a few blog entries for our time in CT, (starting at, which should give you a flavour of how much we enjoyed it.

    Thanks again for your blog Joanne, I'm gonna miss watching the day-by-day stadium building progress. Have you considered just doing a general CT blog, showing what new and happening in your beautiful city. I would read it...!!

    All the best - SteveG
