What I love about living here


This is the list. It will most probably change and expand, but let's start with this...
  • The way the city glows after a perfect African thunderstorm.
  • Saturday morning coffee at Tribeca (Hopefully they will update their site soon)

  • Walking to the corner cafe instead of taking the car.
  • Sunnyside street fashion (more about that later)
  • Cafe Riche on Church Square. Amazing space with a rich history.
  • Skyscraping - a new-found adventure where we try to access rooftops of tall buildings. Amazing vantage points.

  • Walking the dogs in the local park.

  • Toni's Pizza. According to me, the best in the world. Go and see for yourself.
  • Discovering hidden gems in the city: Beautiful International style buildings, details, history, people.

  • Off-the-beaten-track and Vintage shops like Bell Bottoms in Pierneef Street.
  • Food markets. Hazelwood food market and the old favourite, Die Boeremark.
  • The mild winters we have here.
The list goes on and on. But this is me for tonight. Why do you love living here? Send some ideas and comments.
