last night I went to the Taste of Cape Town and like all the years previously it did not disappoint. I did notice that it was a lot busier and the number of stands seemed to have increased. It is housed at a different location each year, and I found that whilst this years spot was very convenient (Green Point), the access in and out of the parking was far too slow. It was easier to park further away and walk in. I also found that the tents were too spread out and the layout very confusing. I kept walking around in circles unable to get my bearings. I think it would have been better to keep things closer together. My all time favourite location was at the German school in Tamboerskloof two years ago.
