Why I Love Cape Town

As if the ocean, mountains and wine farms weren’t enough, here’s just one more reason to love Cape Town.  While most cities have botanical gardens, they aren’t exactly like Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.  Instead of perfectly trimmed bushes and color coded flower beds, you get a massive park of indigenous plants growing as big and beautiful as they can at Kirstenbosch.  Here trees, like this one, are free to go wild.  Throw in a backdrop of mountains and a few strategic benches, and you’ve got yourself one great garden!
