Kaapstad
Cape Town

Trying to avoid the Big City (and also the malaria), there was no way to get to the country without hitting Kaapstad. We were not sorry.
There is a famous Malay quarter, which apart from the mosques, and several other attractions, of course has at least one graveyard, on top of a hill with a glorious view over town and bay. No names on the gravestones. I don't know if this is a standard Muslim procedure, but I liked it.
I also have to tell you that we didn't find a trace of jihad feelings. On the street we happened to encounter what obviously was some sort of religious leader, and he was absolutely delighted to meet someone from the Americas.
