Similar appearance, culture etc. Not too surprising when we remembered that this was where the Cape Malay community had come from hundreds of years ago. Good nosh, nice people. Can't complain, really.|

and the flocks of pigeons which make London's Trafalgar Square ones look a
Have a look at what another tourist thought of the caves here.
