From the blog:

I have spent the last two nights sleeping in a pine forest in Grabow just over the Boland mountains from where we live.  There is something very special about pine forests.  Pines are not indigenous to Cape Town.  However the Eastern Slopes of Table Mountain are apparently prime forestry area and there are large stands of pines in Newlands Forest, even though they are being replaced by indigenous forest as they are harvested.

Years ago, when I was studying at UCT, I lived in Fishhoek for a year, quite a distance from the campus.  In that year I had a Friday morning hand-in for a computer course I was doing (in which I managed to learn nothing about computers or programming) and therefore worked in the computer centre until it closed at midnight.

It was quite a trek out to Fishhoek at that time so I took to parking a car in the residence parking lot and walking up, past the campus into Newlands Forest where I would sleep under the pines, looking out over the lights of Newlands and the Cape Flats.
