An Afternoon at University of Cape Town

Yesterday I spent the afternoon talking books and publishing with Ron Irwin at the University of Cape Town. It was a most inspiring afternoon, the perfect combination of inspiring conversation and the perfect surroundings.

The University of Cape Town is one of the most beautiful campuses I've ever set foot on (apologies to y alma mater). It sits half-way up the side of Table Mountain, overlooking the the city in the valley below. It is an intellectual aerie, bustling with students.

I had to restrain myself from running to the admissions office with an application. Wouldn't you want to study here? I sure would.

Next time I'll bring my sketchbook.
