We spent Sunday 30th at the Lievland wine farm sipping on wine, listening to great local musicians and swimming in a dam. On our way home we decided to make a detour via Adderley Street to see what was going down for the “Switching on the lights” ceremony. It was awesome. I had no idea what to expect. First we got stuck in quite a thick traffic jam and once we found parking we slipped into the fat stream of 50 000+ pedestrians. It was awesome. Grannies, grandchildren, lights, braais, chicken lickin, an ongoing parade and beautiful street lights.

This year’s event was set to be the best in its 42 year history. T’was rad.
