Weird and Wonderful Things Seen in Cape Town

Over the years, I’ve built up a collection of weird and wonderful things seen on my travels and at home. Public transport in Cape Town was my main inspiration, as you can see below. Many of these made me giggle, or think, “Only in South Africa!”. If you enjoy these pictures, be sure to check out my German collection here.
