So many pictures. So much beauty. Let’s travel the trails of the fabulous South Africa, a country not without it’s scars. Here people cling to hertitage and homelands with a devoted passion. Why? Because it’s absolutely worth it! there are so many stories behind the camera lens.
C for “Cape Town”
Cape Town was, before the Johannesburg Gold Rush, the largest city in South Africa; it nestles beneath the Table Mountain. Loved by all; residents, ex pats and tourists alike; it is the first place anyone in the world thinks of, when you say the words “South Africa.”
Capetonians are proud of this and their city! And so they should be!
What makes it colourful, is not only the history, but the markets too. Afterall, it was Cape Town’s first role: a market for sailors! A stop over to refresh food supplies.
The markets on V&A Waterfront, selling gifts and curios await. Who doesn’t seek out a market on holiday!
The Old and the New
One stall to look out for is Sol Art Pewters, an African design range of beautifully hand crafted pewter, 100% lead free and food safe. A family business of crafted cutlery and carving knives and look at him!
The stall below can be found on Green Market square, down town in Cape Town.
I love the range of colours in the beads below! My absolute favourite is the black one fouth from the bottom on the right.
And when you are ‘all shopped out’, their are so many choices of where you can go to eat. Around town and down by the V&A Waterfront. You could sit on the front and see the last rays of the sun across the water sipping a great Cape Wine.
