One Point, A Million Points of View

There are few things as exhilarating as standing at the base of a beautiful, 150 year old lighthouse, perched precariously high above the swirling Atlantic Ocean, and knowing that you’re at the most southwestern tip of Africa. Knowing that the next closest landmass, when you look across the icy seas, is Antarctica – more than 4,000 kilometres away. The panoramic views that spread out before you are breath-taking. Literally, because you’ve just earned them with a final push up the final flight of stairs from the upper funicular station. And once you’re there, it’s impossible not to spend a few silent minutes taking in the gravity of the dramatic location, before you instinctively reach for your camera.

Diamond Experience at the V&A Waterfront

We visited the Cape Town Diamond Museum in the Clock Tower Precinct of the V&A Waterfront to learn more about the creation of a diamond. It is a complex journey from darkness to light, incorporating elements of geology, science, time and skill before it attracts our attention as a rather unremarkable stone.
