Hard to believe it’s almost been 2 weeks since we left Cape Town. Been going through the photos and found one that I never got to post. It’s the outside of the building we lived in; 220 Westside Studios. Our place is one floor down from the top and the one with the windows open.
Crunch weekend before the big day was held at Kresten’s place. Here are the photos: http://photography.jbwoodruff.com/Travel/Cape-Town-2013/2013420-Demo-Day-Prep-Weekend/
What you’re seeing is the remains of our second helping of triple fried chips from Birds on Bree street. Easily top 5 fried potatoes I’ve ever had.
The end is in sight and we’re enjoying our last full day in the city that has been our home for the past 3 months. Lists are my specialty so I’ll share a bit about things we loved in no particular order: – The seafood – Table Mountain to wake up to – Sunsets and… Continue reading My Ode to Cape Town
So we have one more full day here and we thought we’d pack a picnic and hike up Devil’s Peak. We woke up to this sight. Now on to Plan B > Figure out what Plan B is.
I have a mountain of photos to get through and upload, but here’s a gallery I’ve uploaded from my second hike of Lion’s Head on April 20th. Got some great shots this day. Photo Gallery: http://photography.jbwoodruff.com/Travel/Cape-Town-2013/2013420-Lions-Head/
5 times in 10 days. Not too bad.
Clouds this morning so we thought we’d do some meditating.
The program has officially come to an end. It culminated with our Demo Day this past Thursday, April 25th. The format was 10 startups pitching their business ideas to potential investors and media.
After hiking Lion’s Head this past weekend we decided that once a week isn’t enough. We woke up this morning at 5:30am and headed out in the dark. I was joined by Arnaud, Stefano and Rahul. What a great way to wake up and watch the sun rise.
Nice hike this morning with Arnaud, Stefano, Eliana (Stefano’s daughter), Nick and Jess. Great times, but we found a pocket on the mountain where you could float. Pretty wild stuff.
The night before Shannon headed off around the world, we headed to The Greenhouse for dinner. An amazing place with very creative dishes. I suggest it if you’re really in the mood for something different and special.
It was a sad day in Cape Town with Shannon’s departure. She’s off to Cairo as I write this. We’ve had an amazing couple of months and can’t believe it’s coming to an end. My sadness was briefly distracted with the sight of a beautiful rainbow during sunset. It’ll be a long two months, but… Continue reading Sunset in Cape Town
Mweb is trying to steal Arnaud and my thunder, but I’d say they did a nice job of it in their video they put out about 88mph.
Some of you might remember from my post Don’t Park Here that I had some problems paying my parking fine last time around. I thought I’d give it another go this morning. I woke up early, biked down and found a nice short queue at the Office of Enquiries. I walked up, asked to have… Continue reading Parking Ticket Payment Success?
Sunday was my day to try to keep busy since Shannon wasn’t around. My genius solution was to kill myself with a long bike ride. Sure, it wasn’t that daunting, but I saved the hard part for last. My trek took me through the city center, past the V&A waterfront, around Mouille Point, along Sea… Continue reading Sunday Bike Day
