    Go up the mountain

    From Table mountain

    You can see a lot on a clear day. Not exactly a local custom, more like tourist custom, but an excuse to get a picture in. Robben Island in the backround.

    V & A Waterfront

    if you dine outside @ the v & a waterfront, try not to feed the birds ... tens upon tens will converge on you, people around you, and your food! there are some signs posted warning about this.

    Sort of culture....

    The Daily Mail & Guardian, a big SA paper, has a comic called Madame & Eve. It is very popular and gives a bit of an insight in the humour of some South Africans.

    Be friendly, but not stupid ! Most people are nice - don't get out of the car to take a closer look at the slums areas !

    The 'Rainbow Nation' really consists of variations of the colours black and white.
    Different shapes and sizes.

    to recourse to any cultures which is not yours is like taking a road that is going where is going rather than where you are going, therefore watch this out!!
