You wouldn’t believe this…

Day 1, I live in a house with 7 other people. 4 girls and 3 guys. Our house is amazing! There is a pool. Two floors. Awesome living space and kitchen. Not much to complain about. The first day I was here in Cape Town some of the people in my house decided to go to Camp’s Bay. For those of you who don’t know where or what this is it is the equivalent of Santa Monica, or La Jolla in California, it’s a really bougie strip along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. One of things that people often don’t know about Cape Town is how windy it is. So, the winds tend to rip right through Camps Bay and even though its relatively warm outside the bone chilling wind makes your brain slow down like frozen yogurt. Either way the people form my house organized an Uber and started our trek out to Camps Bay for the sunset at around 5:30PM. The drive there was one of the most magnificent views I have ever seen in my life. I saw most of the sunset from the car but it wasn’t a bad thing. You see to get to cape town we must drive in between the mountains, as you rise over the ridge between Table Mountain and Lions Head we were confronted with the sun setting behind the clouds over the distant ocean. The site was magical and the colors that were sprawled across the clouds and sea where unimaginable.



When we finally arrived at Camps Bay I quickly realized how under prepared I was for the weather. The temperature like I mentioned earlier was bone chilling because of the wind. I can only imagine how cold the water was. I was very happy when someone suggested going to the stores that line the coast. We ended up stumbling across Café Caprice a restaurant that was recommended by an Uber driver and another friend of mine. We sat down in a heated room and mulled over the menu. The restaurant was very aesthetic and looked like it belonged in California. I got a coffee for 36 rand which was rather expensive and equated to less then 3$ which was easily 2 dollars more than I had spent on coffee that very same morning. We sat and drank coffee and tea and got to know each other, it was an awesome experience and a good start to my time here in Cape Town.
