#22 GOTTESHAEUSER: ST. MARTINI KIRCHE (GC182QZ)
Long Street in Cape Town, South Africa
Spring Day was spent at a Luscious Food and Wine Workshop of which Blonde Suikerbossie had done the PR and marketing. Feeling a bit out of our wits being surrounded by several, well-known food bloggers and other Tweeps, a Master Chef SA finalist and a television presenter-slash-author of several top-selling cookbooks, we decided to balance the day by doing some quick caching in the Mother City.
First on our list was the soon to be archived St. Martini Church in Long Street. This German Evangelical Lutheran Church of St Martini was founded in 1853 by German immigrants and remains the oldest Lutheran communion in South Africa.
#23 GATE TO KNOWHERE (GC2JMX3)
Dock Road Parking at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa
This was a challenging, and very literal park-and-grab micro cache.
We spotted it quickly and off we were to the next…
#24 NOBEL SQUARE (GC2GG2C)
Noble Square at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa
Number 3 for the day and an absolute must as both Suikerbossies absolutely adore our jolly, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu!
The first Nobel Prizes were awarded in 1901 for achievements in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature and for peace. A prize for economic sciences was added in 1969. Each winner receives a solid gold medal, diploma and cash amount.
Nobel Square in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront was constructed in 2005 and exhibits four bronze statues representing South Africa’s own four Nobel Peace Prize Laureates:
Albert Luthuli, 1960
Desmond Tutu, 1984
FW de Klerk, 1993
Nelson Mandela, 1993
This was Day 7 of 30 consecutive geocaching days.
