Cape Town on Foot: From the Slave Lodge to Bo-Kaap
As you walk, have a look at the formidable art deco-style Provincial Legislature on your left. And on the opposite side of Wale Street is the Mandela Rhodes building complex.
We are now heading towards Long Street, the city's vibrant entertainment centre. This street has a colourful collection of Victorian buildings with wrought-iron balconies. They are now home to an eclectic array of coffee bars, restaurants, fashion boutiques, quality bookshops, antique and souvenir shops.
Motorists double-park, pedestrians jaywalk, skateboarders hurtle past, beggars abound, so do take care as you walk, particularly in the summer season.
Keep going and I'll meet you on the next corner.
