A Day in Photos

T-minus one and a half weeks until we have to leave our favorite city for the States. Right now, that idea seems silly. It sure doesn’t feel like we’re leaving Cape Town. Maybe because the rest of our big moves have involved lots of packing, lots of planning, lots of stress…and without all of that, this move doesn’t feel so real. 

Also, we’re in denial. We don’t talk about moving. There are plenty of things to look forward to when we go back to the U.S. We’re so very excited about reconnecting with family, friends and cats, but there is so much we’re going to miss about this city!

One day this week, I decided to document the little things that happen throughout the day. The things I see. The teaching and working and eating and socializing. To remember the day-to-day of my life in Cape Town. It was nice to stop and take the time to document. Maybe I’ll have to do more of these before we leave. I don’t want to forget.

The bright Scalabrini Centre.


My sweet students after a morning class at Scalabrini.


Coffee and work at Field Office.


A walk through the Company’s Garden.


An important sign on Plein Street.


Lunch with my boo at The General Store.


Favorite spot to work in our little flat.


Late afternoon run through Green Point Park.


Creepy art in our flat. Why is the woman so big? What is the clown winking at??


We hosted a dinner party to drink our “too nice to just drink by ourselves” wine that we’ve been saving for a special occasion. I forgot about my mission to take pictures and have no evidence of said party. BUT! Our long-lost Boulder, CO friend Tim texted us the day before the party that he was coming to Cape Town! So this will have to do. A very blurry picture of one non-South African dinner party guest.
