Cape Town is a beautiful city. Its sparkly waters and even more sparkly people have made it the supermodel of Africa. Between million billion dollar luxury homes, trendy clubs and high end cocktails it’s a place that’s easy to have fun. But when the urge for a more chilled out weekend strikes, tuck the stilettos away and head out of town to camp in the Cederberg Mountains.
In the midst of your jabbering work day, it’s nice to be startled. The healthy green African bush contrasts so sharply with this perfectly preserved, burned flower that it startled JD and I on our most recent camping adventure. Once again South Africa keeps me on my toes, just as I thought I understood the Cederberg Mountains.
Here’s to a happy – and startling – weekend ahead!
