Cape Town weekend highlights for May 4 to 6, 2012
With a passion for travel, tourism and social media, Cape Town is the quintessential backdrop for Media Developer Leon Jamarie and his cape adventures.
With the City as his canvass Leon paints the town red covering a range of events and activities in the peninsular while staying true to the traditional culture the mother city offers it’s children,
Originally from Durban, Leon is still an accidental tourist in the city he now calls home and as such is on the line between resident and local tourist able to provide inside knowledge and flavour to the average mundane travel blog.
He is always on the look out for that hidden gem or typical CT party. If it’s fun, relevant, he will cover it.
It may not be a long weekend but there is plenty to discover and explore this weekend in the Mother City. Take in a show, get your hands dirty, be wrapped up in an aria or get down with the rocking sounds at Assembly.
