  • Good, no big deal, there's a mall, a dock, a lot of souvenir shop and a bridge that every world keeps staring at when it opens, Cape Town has a lot of cool stuff, the V&A just to buy and eat, Iguatemi Shopping is better.

  • Something for everyone. With a great opportunity. That it is being listened to in squares with performances by steelbands, vocal groups or solo artists.
