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