We have a wonderful treat today on the jet stream. Jesse Breytenbach is a wonderful artist who has been featured here before. She does a fantastic range of hand screened items that are all available in her etsy shop. She has been kind enough to whisk us away to the place she calls home - South Africa.
A favourite walk along the river.... it's a short walk, but so pretty.Although this is called the 'Cape Town & District Association for the Hearing Impaired', the sign on the window says it's the 'Deaf Club'. A man standing against the corner asked me whether I was an artist. I mumbled "Sort of" and he wished me a nice day. I do like my neighbourhood!The grain mill is quite near my house; it's the tallest building for miles around. It's in an area that used to be heavily industrial, right next the railway line. Now most of the grain is transported by road, which means that huge trucks thunder past, literally shaking foundations as they go, causing cups and glasses to rattle in my kitchen cupboards. The trucks regularly get stuck in the narrow roads, too, to the amusement of pedestrians, but not drivers, I suppose. To really appreciate it's Art Deco touches, it's best to see it from train going past.And Burger Fair as the sun sets: burgers that taste home-made, eaten from a tray clipped on to the car window. The waitress isn't on rollerskates, but she should be.The Werdmuller Centre is a shopping centre that was built in the 70s by a world-renowned architect. People either love it or loathe it, and there are constant rumours and threats of demolition. It's mostly empty but for a church, a few dingy shops, and the best secondhand bookshop in Cape Town, Cafda. I think it's beautiful!
