A relative from up north is staying in Cape Town for the month of March. She is taking a gap year and is doing volunteer work. So while in Cape Town, she has been doing a bit of touring with other volunteers, most of whom are from abroad. She said that what stuck in her mind was how surprised visitors are when they see how big Cape Town is. Our statisticss are freely available at www.capetown.gov.za but the 2007 census showed Cape Town had 3,4 million people living in 2, 461 km2. And that same year we had 1,763,631 foreign visitors and 5,5 million local visitors.
