WHETHER one journeys by the west coast or the east coast, South Africa is far away from the rest of the world. Even the traveller of today, making the trip in all ease and comfort on the excellent liners which plough the Atlantic and the Indian Oceans, can imagine something of the dismay of the earlier explorers when, after weeks and months of sailing, they touched the southern tip of the continent only to find the interior cut off by sharply rising mountains and anchorage room lacking. Today that terror is gone and one is lost in wonder and admiration at the splendid setting of Cape Town, the gateway to the country, with her two oceans thundering at her battlements and majestic Table Mountain like a steadfast friend at her back. A great harbour built by human energy insures shipping conveniences and safety. And ashore a new sort of city greets the visitor, with all modern facilities and, as befits the crossroads of the world, a mingling of races and customs strange and alluring to all who look with seeing eyes.
