    Provincial Parliament

    Pay wave

    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.

    [PAUSE]

    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.
