    Okay, I uploaded some.

    Shopping area on the outskirts of Cape Town near the waterside:

    Edit: Ah yes, Dassies. I think the reason the ones on Table Mountain are fat is because they eat the rubbish out of the bins that the tourists leave:

    thank you for sharing them Volk!

    Are the colours of the sky and the sea really of so saturated blue?

    Ha! At least in one country they have such garbage on the streets as we have in Moscow! It's on the photo of the Shanty Town.
    Я так думаю.

    No problem.

    Yes, the sky has that deep saturated blue colour to it.

    And I can safely say the tourist parts of the city, as can be seen in the first photo, do not have as much rubbish around, but the rest of it does. The government usually focuses on other things in order to attract tourists to the area and mostly those areas are focused on.
    Please correct any Russian language mistakes I make.

    WoooW Cool pix Volt! thanx alot for sharing, that was attractive!

    Jesus is born in the middle east, therefore he must have dark skin color
    have u seen real middle-easterns?
    the middle east is a big region with many races in it, there are really white people in it, and also tan people and dark skinned.

    Jesus was not an Arab because at that time there was no arabic language at all!

    anyways, i dont know how does this topic relate to the original topic about south africa?

    lol, i have some family members who went to s.africa and they were totally amazing with the nature there!

    My point exactly. Jesus could be just as white as any normal white person living in the middle east at those times.

    translations.nm.ru, I wasn't planning to go into a deep anthropological discussion, but the point is that just because good ol' Jesus was born in the middle east, doesn't mean that he has to look like an Arab, which was what the above posters were indicating. The argument that the jews might mix with semitic people, does not mean that a) all jews mix and b) all children will look mixed. But honestly, I don't care.

    lol I am from Cape Town , ill get some photos up and running as soon as I find them. I have been bitten by a dassie while hiking around the mountains because tourists tend to fed them food and the same for baboons making them more tame and looking upon humans as a food source. Table mountain is just one of the natural wonders of South Africa , we also have a world heritage sight , st . Lucia on the Eastern coast just below the border of Mozambique I am leaving for there in a weeks time after the download festival. Cape Town is also home to the great white shark and it is the first place they recorded them breaching the water to catch seals .http://yblogza.com/ there are some good pics of Cape Town here on this sight. Recently some english tourist burnt our mountain down so its a bit bland at the moment.
    its my opinion - but its flexible

    Oh yeh, the crime in South Africa is crazy (even worse than in Russia). I knew a chick from Durban who's family left after they were caught in the middle of a gun battle.

    people have a stronger sense of community because of it. Better than the UK where people hide behind laws and now cannot think for themselves. I dont know I personally have been mugged about 8 times before i was 14 but haniging around the wrong areas then you reach a point where you just dont take it anymore. I have a friend of mine who is currently hitch-hiking accross africa he has a website www.geocities.com/somewhereontheroad his name is Tim , I was already up here when this happened but he was walking home at night and this guy came up to him and put a gun to his head and asked him for his money and Tim said F**k your gun and F**k you and walked off the guy just left him. People blow it out of proportion on the otherhand i know people who have never seen anything for years. Crime is a part of society we just have a violent culture but saying that it has giving birth to some of the most peaceful people of our time. At least you have a chance to react and face life.

    take offense if u want Taty and insult me more for you will only understand once you have been there and I was referring to the UK. People agree with me here they are soft and spoilt and they still complain even though they have it very easy.
