1+1+1 for 365, day 40:


“Perhaps it was history that ordained that it be here, at the Cape of Good Hope that we should lay the foundation stone of our new nation. For it was here at this Cape, over three centuries ago, that there began the fateful convergence of the peoples of Africa, Europe and Asia on these shores.”  - Former President Nelson Mandela, during his inauguration speech on May 9, 1994.

Today, something that links to a bit of nostalgia that I picked up online yesterday:  lovely collections of historical photographs and press clippings that have been uploaded to Flickr. Click here for one concentrating on Cape Town and here for one with lovely old post cards  and then this one that shows historic Cape Town in art.  Finally, another that takes one back to being a tourist/holiday maker in SA in the 1960s.
