On Sunday, my friends and I joined some 6000 other people for Jack Parow & Van Coke Kartel’s Summer Sunset concert at Kirstenbosch.
Jess made a great observation: the ticket said ‘Jack Parow with Francois van Coke acoustic’, so Mnr van Coke was there with his acoustic guitar, but so was the rest of Van Coke Kartel, along with some guest strings…then some Fokofpolisiekar guys came on and did a track or two, and later Die Heuwels Fantasties came out to do a track with Jack Parow – so we went to see 2 guys and all their friends ended up coming along, it was great!

Another hot day in Cape Town, but at least the wind’s taking a break…stood on Signal Hill and watched the boats depart on the Cape To Rio at noon today:
A stroll through the Milnerton Market is guaranteed to deliver all kinds of weird and wonderful people and things.
...some more weird than wonderful
Aside from bathing Santa there, the most bizarre thing I saw on display today was a collection of teeth – the guy selling them said he used to be a whaler, sometimes as far away as Antarctica, and that the teeth were from a Sperm Whale…
not quite sure how to feel about those teeth...
Some early outings of 2011: Cherry-picking at Klondyke Farm in Ceres…
…and visiting the botanical gardens in Stellenbosch

Alright, so I decided to start this blog to keep myself busy and as motivation to have something to update regularly…and because it seemed like a good idea at the time.
So, as it’s the end of the year, I’ll start off with a summary of 2010 in pictures…
January – March : summer…
