Cape Town car rental is boring

6 Sep 2008

[Note that since this article was written, Imperial Car Rental rebranded as Europcar on 1 Jun 2009]

Frankly speaking, I find the Cape Town car rental market boring at the moment. All the car rental companies seem to be in some kind of a comfort zone, with none varying their prices an inch (I lie, Thrify Car Rental increased their price from R411 to R474). We looked at car rentals for the weekend from the 3rd October 2008 until the 5th October 2008, and whilst not much had changed, Avis Car Rental was still cheapest:

The tourist who spotted the people

Arthur Gilroy is your one in a million tourist, who instead of taking photos of Cape Point and Table Mountain, actually connected with and photographed South Africa's most precious component - its people. Hats off to you, Sir! Having heard about South Africa's AID pandemic, crime and poverty, Arthur was surprised to see how happy the people of the country appear in the lens of his camera, and he contrasted that with the relative lack of smiles on the streets of America.
