Change can come in many shapes and sizes, when you live in Cape Town the biggest change comes when the Season’s change. Here we always have a wet winter and a very cold one at the same time, Sunday we were still walking in shorts and tank tops and today its officially storming outside. I think the winter officially dropped into Cape Town this week. I think it is skipping Fall and jumping right to the point!
With the change in season’s comes the change in our personal lives too, when summer approaches then everyone is looking forward to the sunny days at the beach and everyone tries to get into shape before the summer really slams us. When winter is approaching we can start to see everyone’s mood sink slightly and you can look forward to movie nights at home, eating soup and pancakes and don’t forget about the cups of milo being drunk over the course of the winter. For some reason the Capetownians forget how to drive properly and road-rage becomes more common. The smell of popcorn and the smell of wet grass, the sound of a warm fire prickling in the background. I personally love the change winter brings…I am for sure, a winter baby!
