Molo Cape Town!

Tomorrow I’ll be boarding a flight to Cape Town, South Africa, where I’ll be spending the next month studying abroad. Our group will be completing a studio report on a small, 200-year old town outside of the city.

While Cape Town is renowned as a fascinating and beautiful place, I think I’d like any place where the top item on the city website is an announcement about the process of “updating and rationalising its spatial planning policies and frameworks, in order to simplify the planning environment and more importantly give direction to the City’s long-term development.”

I plan to write a bit here about the trip before I return in early July.

The photo was taken by my friend Michael at the Cape of Good Hope during his visit to Africa last year, and molo means “hello” in Xhosa, one of South Africa’s 11 official languages.

  1. someone using “Molo Cape Town” as the opening line, in an article on Molo’s birth day (1 June) can not go unnoticed. Enjoy your stay, read about all things to do on, listen to music in our “Pulse Section” (and feel free to link to from your blog)!
