Rugged and Beguiling – The Inspired City of Cape Town

300 feet below the road that circles the little ‘burgs around Cape Town, a steep slope leads to prime beachfront upon which a score of vacation homes lie abandoned. The way I heard it, they were built when an Englishman came to town and decided to build, unaware of the dangers of the area.

To get to the homes, you’d have to park your car in the middle of baboon territory. Baboons are intelligent, incredibly strong, and have huge teeth. They’ve been seen chasing down and killing full-grown zebra’s, as though they were lions. They also have lots of fun destroying people’s cars.
