Our apartment was broken into, and I had my laptop stolen.
Bummer. Well, less to carry around now .. Corinna, my
flatmate, bought a house in Rondebosh, so we moved out of our apartment.
There was a magnificent fireworks show over the harbour at the
end of March. Cape Town is really such a beautiful place - a
perfect setting for such a thing.
I took a leave of absence from InTouch in Cape town this month,
and first went to an open-air weekend music festival at
Rustlers Valley, in Eastern Orange Free State. I also went there for the
Easter festival two years ago - the weather was better this time,
and it was better organised.
Top of the bill was "THC" - who came on too late on
Sunday for me to stay up and watch.
No matter - there was music all weekend, I met a few people
I knew from before - and lots of other people, mostly from
Johannesburg. And, yes, there is a difference between folks
from Johannesburg and Cape Town ..
I camped, bought some funky clothes, and adopted other campsites
and generally had a great time. South Africans really
know how to party.
After Rustlers, I headed down to Eshowe, Zululand, where I spent
some time last time I was here.
It is interesting to see the place two years on - in the fort
museum I was even recognised by the lady curator ..
Graham Chennells, with whom I got along well with last time,
is much as usual.. I have woken up with a hangover twice in
a row now ..
