Where in SA would you live?

If you could live anywhere you wanted to in SA to be near climbing, where would it be?

I suppose the majority would most probably say the cape town area. My shout would be for Boven, or maybe be a hermit and return to the Free State (eastern highlands though - not Bloem). Blouberg? Durbs? Wild coast?

Hawkman ... depends whether you live to climb or have to work to live to climb. I am the latter so Cape Town gets my vote ... seeing that I reside in the City Bowl a good (working) weekday can go like this ...
work 08h30 to 14h45 / 15h00 iisss ... then 10 min to house, grab gear & girlfriend, 10 min to table mountain Road, 20 min up to contour path and then climb whatever you want really ... show me another place in the work I can do that ... and be back home at 19h30 showered and ready for dinner ...

And we have not even talked weekends yet ...

Cape Town is something special ...
