Cranes in the container terminal of Cape Town harbour. I love the toy-town feeling in the picture. However, these are real working cranes, and if you look closely you can see a few cars and trucks, giving a sense of perspective of the size of these cranes.

This is truly the most beautiful city in the world.


  1. Wow, your cranes look like they’re made from giant legos. So colorful. thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. Wishing you continued good times in Rome.

    That is exactly what I thought (remember meccano). It also looks a littke like a model harbour, but they are real cranes used for the container ships:-)

    We had a great time in Rome, but alas are back at work.
