Today we went to Oranjezicht city farmers market. On one side, it is an actual market where all kinds of organic and fresh fruits, vegetables and other ingredients are sold. On the other side, it was also a food market where everything was cooked into delicious meals.
Next to the market was the V&A waterfront, Cape Town’s historical harbor. There we visited a shopping center and another food market where we had lunch. I ordered Kubu kebab made out of Ostrich, Crocodile, Zebra and Warthog. This was a delicious combination of different flavors, each with their unique taste. After lunch we went to the watershed, which is a combination of flex workspaces and local design stores, based in an old harbor building.
After V&A we went to Woodstock, which was recently a very criminal but now upcoming creative suburb of Cape Town. There are lots of design and concept stores and yet another food market. We had a drink at the Woodstock brewery and saw some amazing murals. After this we decided to go back to the hostel.
On the way back, the weather was clear enough to climb the lion’s head, a mountain in the middle of Cape Town from where you can see the whole city and also see the sun set into the sea. The climb, which started relatively flat, ended up in a real endurance test. When we finally reached the top we had a breath-taking view over the city. We stayed here for a while and enjoyed watching the sunset.
On our way back it slowly started to get dark and the lights in the city turned on. This made us realize how gigantic the city was with all its suburbs and townships.This entry was posted in Cape Town, Travel
