36 Seconds in Cape Town! Who can resist?

I just had to click on the play button of this fun and fast New York Times video of Cape Town.

I got to see the view from the Table Mountain cable car, Camps Bay, Greenmarket Square, the District 6 Museum, Long Street and much more.

And it made me laugh, too.

Of course a lot was left out - Robben Island and Cape Point, for instance — but still how much can you fit in just 36 seconds?

Go ahead.

Take a quick trip to southern tip of Africa. Or, if you're already there, take a look.
