Ian returned to South Africa after his trip to Cape Town in December 2003 with the main purpose of promoting the boxing challenge he is going to take on in October of this year. To see more please click here. The main purpose of the challenge is to raise funds for the children of Kayamandi. Aaron accompanied Ian so as to be able to enjoy the wonders of Cape Town as well as act as a video photographer for Ian while he was in Cape Town.  The main aim of this website is to show what we did in Cape Town to promote the great cause that Ian was working towards.

I met Ian and Aaron at Cape Town international airport and we left for their place of stay viz. Camps Bay Terrace in Camps Bay. After settling in we immediately went out on a tour of the city.
