Cape Town has been on fire since Sunday. Currently over 4000 ha of bush has been destroyed, and the fire is still not under control. To make it more difficult, yesterday was the hottest day in Cape Town for 100 years. At least today the cooler weather should help a little.
Last night we had another flare-up on Boyes Drive. Literally in the span of about 10 minutes the mountain went from dark to a flaming inferno. These pics were all taken yesterday afternoon and last night at and around my house.
Note the size of the fire truck in the first picture.
I shot this about 2 weeks ago at the Bluebird Garage Market, which is held every Friday evening. While it is not close to the great European markets it’s nice to pop down for a drink or two, have some interesting food. Having said that, there is usually live music and craft beer, so it is worth popping down one Friday evening.
