Westminster has Little Saigon. Artesia has Little India. Even Anaheim got in the act by declaring a section of Brookhurst Street as Little Arabia.
It's high time Laguna memorialized its very prominent South African community and officially declare itself Little Cape Town. It could be great for business. More people would see us as a smaller version of that gorgeous resort town on the tip of Africa's Southern Hemisphere, where the dramatic, rugged mountains cascade to the sea. Where there's great surf, amazing wilderness, plus Boervorst (farmer sausage), Peri Peri and lamb curries (all available at Mozambique).
Truth is, Laguna is a South African colony, with hundreds of South Africans raising families here. I was lucky enough to have five of them on my radio show last week to talk about the passing of Nelson Mandela and the impact he had on their lives.
