"Great" Expectations

Throughout my entire South African journey, I was told by multiple people how much I was going to love Cape Town. The amount of times I was relayed that information was so extreme I was worried my expectations were too high and I'd arrive being nothing but disappointed. Little did I know, the greatness of Cape Town was even greater than the greatness I had portrayed it to be in my head.

In order to describe how great "great" actually is, I will describe it this way: Cape Town has three types of gangs; the ones that stab, the ones that shoot and the ones that rape. And I would willingly risk an encounter with all three if it meant I could live there.
