cape town round-up

It is the day after the first day of Spring and it is twenty degrees colder than it was a week ago. But at least it's sunny. There is something about sunshine in March that manages to still be warmer than that same sunshine a few weeks earlier. So, thank goodness for that! I think the whole world is ready for springtime, literally and metaphorically. We could all due with some rejuvenation and new life these days, after the natural disasters in Japan and New Zealand, air strikes in Libya and bus tour crashes in New York. Hopefully this new season, which also marks the beginning of the Baha'i new year (Naw Ruz), can bring some of that. Personally, I have felt a lot of gratitude as we head into the spring months, for all the richness in my life and for the resilience and spirit of the human race at its best.

On that note, and because it is long, long overdue, I thought I would post some photos and writeups on some of the spots we visited while in Cape Town. Can't believe it was a month ago yesterday that I go back from that wonderful trip!
