Good morning GG-Team :D

Alias

Someone who was a charismatic leader regarded by his followers as a prophet and he was also a baker but you need to go back to the 1500’s

Movie star who acted in movies with themes such a zoo, the ocean and even Grimm will help you

Someone who harmonises

A good place to start is the fairest Cape

A EP one:

Alias

The heat and the monotony
But not parched-up or scorched
For some the clean crisp air during winter is like dry champagne
A lot of South African tradition and typical South-African architecture are found here where the “Voorkamers” are always cool
(The translation for Voorkamers are perhaps living rooms)

But not parched-up or scorched - the Karoo is semi-desert

For some the clean crisp air during winter is like dry champagne - Found in the Karoo, especially at Matjiesfontein

A lot of South African tradition and typical South-African architecture are found here where the “Voorkamers” are always cool – The Karoo

:shock: Jeanni !!!! :lol: well done you are correct :clap: :clap: :clap: :thumbs_up:

Crewed by ghostly sailors, it is doomed forever to sail the stormy waters - The Flying Dutchman is a legend that originated in the Cape of Good Hope

The Arniston and the HMS Birkenhead – Example of ships which sank in the ocean of the Western Cape Province

Close the shutters it has to be more than one – A storm is coming, two or more Storms are applicable here for purposes of the GG

A picture in words and you are there - Cape of Storms is descriptive of the Western Cape Province due to the weather conditions that sometimes occur.
