Cape Town highlights for May 21 to 24, 2012
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
This week, Cape Town warms up with a variety of hot events to attend. From a tasty festival at the Cape Town International Convention Centre and a hilarious comedy show in Observatory, to decadent pampering in the Stellenbosch Winelands, a fun-filled winter week in the Mother City awaits you.
