Cape Town

Table Mountain over Cape Town

I spent my last week in Africa in beautiful Cape Town. It was a real treat to be in such a magnificent place. The majestic mountains, turquoise seas, and unique wildlife create an awesome setting. Also, it was wonderful to have time with my friend Jean Downing and her family. Jean and I lived in Belgium together and I had not seen her since we both moved four years ago. It was wonderful to be with her and her family again. This week was more of a vacation in the midst of my travels. I got to be a tourist for the week and Jean did an excellent job of showing me around the Cape Town area. Also, I did speak to a group of teenagers at a home school academy where Jean works a few days a week. The teens are home schooled but also meet together once a week. I talked to them about my experience in Zambia as well as being open for the opportunities that God places in our paths. I had never planned to live in either Belgium or Zambia, but found myself in South Africa visiting friends from Belgium for this week!

I would like to share my experience in Cape Town with you through my photographs. I enjoyed visiting with my friends, the natural scenery, and the city itself - what a great way to end my time in Africa. I hope you catch a glimpse of this amazing part of our world!
