V&A Waterfront characters – A Cape Town Tourism photo essay
Even for an old Capetonian like me, the V&A Waterfront is always an experience. It’s fun, it’s exciting and there are so many people to meet and exciting adventures to go on.
One such adventure can be found aboard the Jolly Roger. The crew invited me and my two young companions aboard and, before we knew it, we were involved in a sword fight of note. Great fun!
Afterwards, we chatted to the inimitable crew and promptly scheduled an unforgettable sunset cruise for later that day.
Buskers are liberally scattered all over the V&A Waterfront. Their sounds vary from traditional African, to Eastern, jazz, folk… anything you can think of. At some stage, you’re sure to hear your favourite musical genre.
Two of the band members are Lyuda (pictured above) and Veronica (pictured below).
Zamar’s music is superb and its stage presence even more so. The band takes you on a journey around the world and plays anything from gypsy to jazz. Amazing! Well worth going to see, if you ever have the chance.
After a long day filled with adventure, sights and sounds, you can follow the example of the local wildlife and have a good night’s rest (although I would suggest a more comfortable location than a borrowed jetty).
Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
