First the cultural. It all started last Thursday night, when we hit town and to take in the South African opera.
It was just the most amazing experience of a staged production I've ever had: ever, ever, ever. I loved every minute. This clip hardly does it justice.
By the end I was up on my feet, loudly showing my appreciation. The encore was a traditional South African song, and afterwards the man next to me asked me its name. I chose to be flattered, rather than annoyed, on this occasion, readers. I wish I did know its name and all the words. I've been slightly obsessed with South Africa, since it began its new life...South African arts, South African fashion...(of which, more later).

|Truly a bike will take you anywhere in this city. Its hard to believe that scenes like this are within the borders of the capital.|

Ahhh, but since the heatwave seems to be over...This weekend, I'm looking forward to BE.BOP and a new exhibition Fashioning Fashion....
