There are no strangers here, only friends you haven't met

Never have I visited a location, none-the-less lived in one, where I was immediately enveloped into the community by everyone I met as I was in South Africa. Complete strangers felt like old friends - we'd jump into a conversation, laughing and joking as though it was a continuation of a discussion we had the day prior, all before introductions were even made.

Adding the beauty of Cape Town to the friendliness of the locals, the city is nothing but golden. (Free roaming penguins don't hurt either).

I know it's called Cape Town but I had never visualized that it sat on a cape. I had another friend visit there last year and I was blown away by the scenery and the town. You've reinforced my first impressions. Enjoy!
