My son is studying Computer Science at the University of Cape Town. As I have never been onto campus other than to fetch him at the information center after an early evening test on occasion, he invited me on an escorted tour of the campus last Sunday. I know that film crews sometimes shoot scenes there, especially on the famous steps. The campus ground is rich in history, and UCT is world-renowned for excellent education. Allister seems to be super happy there, and now I know why too. No wonder many foreign students come to study at this beautiful place.
After an interesting tour, and loads of photographs, we decided to have lunch at Rhodes Memorial – so-called after Cecil John Rhodes, a pioneer in the South African history. The old Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, was also named after him. Rhodes Memorial sits just above UCT on the side of Table Mountain, overlooking the Cape Flats, and the Hottentots Holland Mountains in the distance. On a clear day one can see all the way to Stellenbosch, Blaauwberg and Somerset West with Tygerberg Hills lying in between. The restaurant and food have certainly had a huge upgrade since I had been some time ago, and we savored scrumptious Caesar Salad, carrot cake and lovely Dom Pedros made with Kahlua – so strong I felt rather tipsy walking back to the car! The weather and the view were outstanding, a perfect day in Cape Town!
