Bric à Brac in THE Book Shop

Some photo’s I made at Hemingway’s in Hermanus. You might ask yourself if this is a book shop or a museum? It’s described as one of the ‘must visit spots’ in the new Louis Vuitton City Guide of Cape Town. Funny enough Hermanus is NOT in Cape Town but 120 odd kilometers East of the Mother City..

Deja Vu: The Caledon Botanical Garden

While tourists are, en masse, directed to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden in Cape Town by the tourism industry; real garden lovers from abroad (who did their own home work) prefer to go to a garden one-and-a-half hour East of the ‘Mothercity’. No tourist banter like coffee shops, restaurants and Made-in-China-shops but a real more natural enjoyment with stunning views and only plants that originate (endemic) from this region (Overberg). The garden is situated in the oldest (official) nature reserve of South Africa.

Going through my archive I re-discovered this wonderful garden.
