Old Bicycle

A lovely old bicycle that I saw the other day. I doubt that it is going to go anywhere soon, but I wonder where it has been?

Death on a boat

This strange urban art that has appeared in one of the canals in Cape Town, apparently it is to raise awareness of the pollution in the water.

The Chris de Burgh song “don’t pay the ferryman comes to mind.

Lush

The best soap shop in the World is finally in Cape Town, of course that is Lush (in the V&A Waterfront). We have been to their stores in at least five countries, and every time we are loaded with soaps, but finally we can just go down the road to get their soaps.

They are very eco-aware; their soaps are vegetarian, not tested on animals, green, they support charities etc. It really is a great shop to support. Lois is really happy that they are in Cape Town. It is really worth a visit, and the soaps will make great Christmas presents.

Here is a preview of the shop.

The Coke Man

I think that everybody in Cape Town has taken a shot of the Coke Man, and here is my contribution. He was born during the 2010 Soccer world cup, and has been here ever since. His name is Elliot, and he is made from over 2500 coke creates. I can’t tell you much more about him, aside to mention that he seems to have a few brothers scanned around the world, but there is very little official online (at least that I can find).

The medals are that he is wearing are celebrating wins from the SA Olympic team., and you can visit him anytime at the V&A Waterfront (you can’t miss him).

Dancing shoes

Not often you see me in a ballet hall, but don’t worry it is just a venue we are using.
