Winter Break in Summer

After our two weeks in Cyprus, we met up with Daughter in Milan.  Her fall semester completed, she had a month free.  Previous years, we spent together in Istanbul and in Morocco.  Instead of a chilly apartment in Europe, we opted for summer in Cape Town, South Africa.  Wife and I enjoyed our African adventures last February.  There were still places to explore in Cape Town.

For the previous breaks, Daughter has flown a direct flight to meet us.  Traveling together, changing planes in Dubai was a chance to stretch our legs during the break of the 15 hour flight time.

As it was University break, we did not need an adventure every day.  Daughter took an all day tour of Cape Town and the Cape of Good Hope.  She got to hangout with penguins and took some stunning video of the waves breaking on Cape Point.  Together we climbed up Table Mountain, watched the Kaapse Klopse (January 2nd Carnival like parade),  and admired street art emanating from Woodstock to the Gardens.

Here is a sampling of pictures from our outings.

Here is some of the street art I found along the way.  There are too many artists to mention.

Finally, one last dip in the South Atlantic.  The water feels really cold at Camps Bay.
