The Crypt

My cold has almost, almost healed, and I decided it was time to head out to Cape Town—for the first time in almost a month!

There was a march downtown—I didn’t catch the reason, but I did catch some shots:

PJ reconnected with a mutual friend of ours from when I first studied here. Actually, it was the friend who set us up—and she won’t let us forget it :D

Our friend works as an educational guide in The Crypt of St. George’s Cathedral, which currently hosts a free exhibition about South Africa’s final State of Emergency during the mid- to late-1980s.

Chatting and catching up in that church basement (which is also a café) just felt right.

St. George’s

It was a lovely fall day, and there’s always something in town to discover. Like this farmer’s market:

Or craft stalls, in general:

Strolled through Greenmarket Square, and while I was sorely tempted by all the beaded jewelry, I didn’t haggle or buy. Today.

PJ took me to a fabulous Indian/Chinese/Middle Eastern spot for food. DELICIOUS, and cheap!

Whoops, his hand was in the shot… so I had to eat it. NOM.

Very cool place to eat.

PJ says this flower stall by the train station has been in business for hundreds of years. Lovely:
