Cape Town City Centre, Cape Town, 8000, South Africa
Little Ethiopia Cafe in the central business district of Cape Town has fantastic Ethiopian food. It's a tiny place with low tables. We ordered several things to share and everything was delicious. They don't serve beer or wine but bring your own...

W Quay Rd, V & A Waterfront, Cape Town, 8002, South Africa

Valparaíso, Valparaiso Region, Chile

Canal Walk, Century Blvd, Century City, Cape Town, 7441, South Africa
Canal Walk is big mall that feels like a city. Lots of stores, a rollercoaster, a canal and apartments. Such a different atmosphere than Cape Town proper. A little pit stop on the way to the airport.
