An innovative artist has added some colour to some of the electricity and fibre maintenance boxes in Muizenberg. I think it’s rather cute and brightens up the area just a little. I hope other areas follow this idea. If you park at Surfer’s Corner or in Palmer Road and walk around you’ll find some of these robots.

South Africa Travel

Last weekend Lois and I did something unusual. We went on a street art tour of Salt River. In itself that isn’t unusual. But what was unusual is that the tour guide, Winston Fani, is blind! It literally was a case of the blind leading the blind. Winston recently received his tour-guide certification from Cape Town tourism, and he is the only blind tour guide in South Africa (and possible even in Africa).

The tour lasted about 90 minutes, and he took us on a walk through Salt River where we went past several art studio, some little coffee shops, and some amazing street art.

This lighthouse is in the middle of the downtown area in Cape Town. I love the way it appears to be growing in soil held out by somebody’s hand. A clever use of a blank wall.

I might have to write a series on the street art in Muizenberg, because I am finding more and more walls with really interesting art painted on them. I drove past this wall the other day, and it was covered in Escherish sharks. I think it is remarkable. The artist’s phone number is in the corner if you want you own wall painted.
