Biodiversity Garden – a wonderful visit in the shadow of the stadium

Remember the slight furore about the Common in Green Point, Cape Town round about the end of 2006, when plans for the new stadium became common knowledge? Locals of the neighbourhood jumped up and down at the mention of the word 'stadium', siting terms like 'w...

La Perla in Sea Point – a review

I’m a huge Springbok fan and there is nothing I enjoy more than a Saturday afternoon in front of the television cheering them on to victory.  However, I’m also closer to 40 than I am to 30, so standing in a heaving pub where you have to queue for a drink has d...
