I love Cape Town and if you have been here you love it too; I haven’t traveled all over the globe either and I don’t need to I just know that Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
On the one side you have Table Mountain it’s an awesome – awesome view looking up and that’s not the only mountain here, sometimes people forget the others! Then there’s the ocean! I LOVE the ocean and mountains so combine these two and you have a perfect combination and city.
But there is something about this place and these people….must be the mist from the mountain that makes them all seem a bit crazy. This week here has not been a holiday all that was missing from a real working week was my drive to the bank. We came here to settle Moo in his flat (my cousin’s flat) we had a huge to-do & to-shop-list and it’s not complete yet (we leaving Saturday). So this has definitely not been a holiday we are busy running around finding things, painting, fixing, shopping and sitting in traffic.
Capetonians don’t like drivers in cars with GP registration, lucky for us we are using a CA car 🙂
Capetonians think we are bad people, funny thing is they are terrible drivers and you better watch out when you’re on the road or avoid them at all costs, take a bus or cycle.
- They never indicate
- They love to cut-in in traffic
- There are way less taxi drivers here than Jhb (that’s a plus) but the ones here are just as dodge, although ‘whities’ ride on them happily
- There’s less hooting, yeah, one good thing
- When you do use the hooter they ignore you anyway kind of like ‘I can’t hear you’
- Peek hour starts at 16h00 sharp! They leave work way too early…need to speak to my boss about my work hours
- They are very slow, chilled and relaxed bru (that’s scary when operating a vehicle)
- Capetonians insist there is no traffic in the city but that’s because they only drive to the Waterfront
- There are hardly any beggars at robots …. mmmm that’s because they are also at the Waterfront
