After visiting Table Mountain, we hopped back on the red route and took the bus round to Green Point. We had a look at the red and white lighthouse standing guard on the shore here. The Green Point Lighthouse was first lit on the 12th of April 1824, making it the oldest operational lighthouse in South Africa. This lighthouse was commissioned by Sir Rufane Shaw Donkin, acting Governor of the Cape Colony. It was designed by German architect Herman Shutte.

Across the road from the lighthouse is Green Point Urban Park. This is a pleasant park in itself and has excellent views of Cape Town Stadium. Cape Town Stadium was built for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. It is the home ground of Ajax Cape Town and Cape Town City.

I rarely ever use hop-on hop of buses but I did in Capetown and think it was great. Also, outside taking a taxi there are no other real options.

The new stadium is in process of being built accross the old stadium.

Years ago while do surveying I mapped the site for the green point stadium. We have had many concerts here, including Brian Adams, Whitney Housten and Nelson Mandela ... Wow the memories that this stadium holds and the events were incredible. Yet now it holds a promis efor the future of South Africa. A land beaming with magical people and the potential to be one of the richest countries in the world. We have the beauty mixed with the magic, ... and if you ever want to see an African sunset, come to Cape Town.

Do view the sunset pics of the stadium they are spectacular. And we hope to see you in 2010 for what promises to be an interesting World Soccer Cup tournament in Africa.
