    Beautiful Beautiful place. Of all the places, I have read on the blogs today, I really want to visit Cape Town. The table mountains are magnificent. And so is watching penguins from close.
    I learnt one thing form the photographs – ‘Die’ is the word in local language for the English word ‘Of’. Does it sound funny to you as well? 😀 Or is it just me?
