we’re ten days into our short sojourn in cape town. its both amazing and a bit tiring to be back in a big city again – on the one hand you get all these things like an access to healthy food, an aquarium, yoga studios, and good restaurants, but getting around is a pain and we are still getting used to all the noise at night. just a different mixture of good and bad i suppose!
here are some photos of our last days in swakopmund.
this is timo, one of the caretakers of our building.
and of course there was not one, but two last visits to the swakopmund snake museum.
the flight to cape town was like this:
luckily our digs in cape town are nice and roomy. we have no less than three bathrooms and two bedrooms, with a big wrap around balcony. unfortunately we can’t really use the balcony. we’re on the first floor so and there are lots of cars that pass through, making it noisy and not so clean. can’t complain though – most other people have a small single room! i also love that the place gets cleaned everyday and we climb into freshly made beds each night. i’m trying not to get too used to it though 😉
we saw this on our first day in cape town. apparently charlize’s mere presence is worthy of front page news.
now that we’re shooting in a studio i have become much busier than when we were in the desert. which means that my explorations of cape town have been rather limited, but brenda and nayou have been out and about snapping lots of photos. here are some from their excursion to a bird park. with bonus monkeys!
in what is becoming an ongoing trend, we met up with one of my high school friends sandra yesterday for brunch. so far i’ve seen old high school friends in australia, mexico, america, bali and now south africa. it wasn’t a big school at all (my class had ~30 people), but we are everywhere! the nice thing is that we all still get along really well. good stuff. here we’re trying to do hand signs for namibia and south africa… but not particularly well.
sandra also took some great family photos of us! its not often brenda and i are in photos together 🙂
two more weeks before we wrap! and less than one week before nayou turns five!
