This doesn't really relate to this topic, but I was wondering if it would be possible for you to post a city-guide of sorts for South Africa? I will be traveling there this summer and I could definitely use some advice of what to visit as well as where to shop and eat and most importantly, drink. Anything you could elaborate on would be absolutely fabulous

Sure. Which cities are you planning to visit? I recommend Cape Town, Pretoria, and Durban. Give me some idea of what you are seeking. Alcohol? I certainly have some recommendations.

I will be in Cape Town for June and July at the University of Cape Town. Any and all recommendations would be welcome. I think Pretoria would be interesting, but I am in no position to fly there for an idle weekend while classes are in session. However with car rental prices at around $20 a day, anything within a reasonable driving distance would be fabulous. I've been thinking about seeing the Wine Country as well as many of the beach towns along the Western Cape, but I would really appreciate the advice of someone who has been there previously.

In any event, anything from bars to restaurants, or from safaris to clothiers, whatever your prior experience has been!

Thank you so much!

Great pictures! I just wanted to let you know that I have returned. With work and many blogging haters out there, I let my blog get to me. Anyway, being the determined bastard that I am, I refuse to let them cause me to quit.

LBT, I leave for Cape Town the 15th of June, so if you do have recommendations I would gladly appreciate them prior to my departure, otherwise keep up the good fight!
