Beauty and the Beast
August 2005, Cape Town

Hello! How are you? The weather is beautiful here! We are in Cape Town, South Africa at the moment which is the most amazing city set between a mountain and the sea. The mountain is called Table Mountain and is a beautiful backdrop to the city making it look like something from the movies! We are currently in Beauty and the Beast with the Cape Town City Ballet. It is a wonderful story about a girl who agrees to stay in a castle with a beast who was once a handsome prince. A sorceress put a spell on him and turned him into a beast and only when he falls in love, and is loved in return, can the spell be lifted.
Apart from rehearsing really hard we have managed to fit in visiting the Kruger N90 National Park. It is South Africa’s largest National Park and about the same size as the country Israel! We went on safari and saw a lion, elephant, rhino and a buffalo! Jasmine was a bit afraid when we saw the Lion! Anyway, must rush, we are going on a cruise to Robben Island which is where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned.
