Some art on a dreary day

I had hoped to climb Table Mountain today, but the weather was too foul. We ended up going to the South African gallery before watching Holland play the Euro 2004 quarter finals. Walking towards the gallery, through the Company's gardens, we not only were welcomed by another statue of Cecil Rhodes, we were also pleasantly surprised by hordes of squirrels, begging for the nuts we had bought from one of the street vendors.

In Zimbabwe, I made sure I read the weekly South African newspaper 'The Mail and Guardian', the only decent newspaper available in Zimbabwe. Over the past couple of months, some art exhibitions advertised in the paper seemed really worth visiting. The first, the political cartoons in Jo'burg, we had already seen, the second, 'Democracy X', we had walked through at the castle the previous day and now the third, 'Ten years of democracy', we were able to visit at the South African National Gallery, on the edge of the Company's Gardens.
