Christmas time in Cape Town

I rushed out to the Mall this morning on an errand. Big mistake. Have you seen how hectic the shopping malls get at this time of the year? Especially in Cape Town where the city is bursting at its seams with holidaymakers as it is. You’d think the lovely weather we are having would keep them at the beach or up Table Mountain or something….

Talking about Cape Town, if you have ever visited this lovely city (or even if you haven’t) you’d appreciate this. Take a look at the following link to get blown away with the most amazing High Definition photograph of the centre of Cape Town. You can zoom in to see incredible detail – try having a look at the workers on the roof of our new 2010 Soccer World Cup stadium, or zoom in on people walking down Adderly Street. Isn’t it cool?

Well, we can moan and groan about how busy Cape Town is now, but just wait until the World Cup is upon us (June 11th - July 11th 2010). The crowds, the traffic jams, the full restaurants, hotels and guesthouses - and their lovely full bank accounts at the end of it!

Don’t even think of flying anywhere in South Africa over that period or trying to hire a hotel room. You can just forget it. I think us locals would be wise to hibernate in front of our TVs for the whole four weeks if we can. If you think that's a good plan, click here for the full programme of matches, buy yourself a Lazy-boy and get ready to put your feet up.... 

I’ll keep it short, as I know you have your eye on the door waiting to dash off for the Christmas holidays (most companies in South Africa are closing tomorrow for 2 or 3 weeks. Our closure is 18 Dec – 4 January, but I shall be checking emails periodically).

I wish you a full stomach on Christmas Day, some champagne if you are that way inclined, and a nice afternoon snooze to sleep it off. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, then enjoy the holidays. You deserve the break, especially after a year like this. Let’s hope 2010 is a far more prosperous one for all of us!

Warmest regards,

Jenny
