Reading by the sea

Had a wonderful afternoon, reading a book (still Toby Litt) by the sea. Finished with a Chimay Bleue at Den Anker, watching Cape Town turning golden while wallowing sealions drifted by.
Now I can hear the prayer calls from Bo-Kaap. Reminds me of Jerusalem.

Food market at the Biscuit Mill

A friend (thanks Sonja!) tipped me about the Biscuit Mill out in Woodstock. Saturdays they have a great food market with lots of delicious stuff. In between the stalls there are long tables - just pick something nice to nibble on, a drink and sit down. Lots of beautiful people as well, and some cool design shops.

Sundowner at Bernie's place in Camps Bay

My landlord in Cape Town, Bernie, is a friendly man. Yesterday he invited me over for a sundowner at his fabulous beach villa in Camps Bay. Interesting people and beautiful views.
