Indaba Design Film Festival

Friday night kicked off the weekend with a quick dinner at Feast right down Bloem street from our place. Apparently it’s now an Indian place (good to know). Got a great R50 buffet and headed off to the Indaba Design Film Festival. We weaved our way through the streets of Cape Town (after forgetting the tickets, thank you iPhone) and arrived on Canterbury street. The event was held in the offices of a local design company. I should say, on the roof of the offices. It was great. Rows and rows of cheap neon plastic chairs ready for my buns to sit and enjoy the giant screen they created on the neighboring building. They served wine and cocktails, provided freshly popped corn kernels and free blankets. The backdrop wasn’t too bad either as it was table mountain. Unbelievable.

The movie we saw was called The Big Easy Express. It’s a documentary about a tour taken by Mumford & Sons, Old Crowe Medicine Show and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. The unique thing was that they took this tour on a train from San Fran to New Orleans. Amazing music and definitely worth watching. We dodged the bad parts of town on our way home and went to bed early.

I decided it’s nice being in a place for a long time because you don’t feel like you need to cram so many activities in a short period of time. Note to self: I need to find a job that allows me the flexibility to work anywhere for a few months at a time.
