The Seine of Cape Town

The Seine of Cape Town
It's not quite the Paris's Seine, but it's about as close as I think we'll ever get. And, if you ignore the occasional plastic bag that manages to find its way into the water it's quite pretty, actually.

You'll find this little gem flowing right down the middle of Cape Town's main street, Adderley Street.

    Lovely photo! Before the street was renamed after Sir Charles Adderley who put a stop to the British turning the Cape into a Penal Colony in the late 1800’s, it was called the “Heerengracht” which translates as “Gentlemen’s Canal”, so a very relevant image.
