No it is not a far fetched story like the tooth fairy, but Cape Town’s weather did go a bit Chronicles of narnia on us, winter has been going on for what feels like a lifetime. Seriously, rain in November, wind? a storm? it’s unheard of, until now.
But it seems like today we are finally getting a glimse of the summer we all know and love. You see the models walking around town, dressed all hip and bohemian like with their books, probably on their way to a casting. Film crews lining the already crowded streets of campsbay with their big yellow kempston trucks. Not a breath of wind. Bliss.
I think I’ll head off to Camps bay beach a little later on, go and stick my toes in the warm sand, go for a well deserved swim in the icy cold Atlantic.
With the thought of the beach, bikinis come to mind. I went bikini shopping earlier this week and found the most… er… interesting, choices. I discovered a dark turquoise Brazilian number, that needless to say, does not have enough material to really qualify as a bikini, its a different species really. Lets just say, you want it covered, not going to work. “Nice to tan in though, and why not? ” I thought then, so yes I now own a bra-kini, after all Brazilian girls have bigger bums than most south African women, so it should cover more on me than it was designed to.
But there are some seriously good stuff this season, just have a squiz at the South African Sports Illustrated swim wear addition 2008, awesome bikinis! Awesome location!
But sticking to cape town, summer also brings frivilous fabulous parties, jazz at blues and gold fish at la med every Sunday. Oh and also more that half of Johannes burg’s population.
This is the most super duper, amazing, yeay, wow time of the year.
Wish you were here, and I’m sure you do too!
