Walking through history

Bright sunny days in Cape Town for the time being. On Saturday I joined a wonderful walk through the old village of Wynberg with social historian, Dr Helen Robinson, who also used to be an actress. This old house, she said, was the first magistrate's court when Wynberg become the magistrative centre of the Cape after 1838 when all slaves were freed. (See website

  1. Its always so much better to go on a walk with an expert. I used to be a tour guide and guides know a lot of general information about lots of things, but never as much as an expert on specifics.
