V.A Waterfront: Christmas Tree

This to me was just kind of hilarious. I knew I was going to be in South Africa for Christmas, but still. It feels a little to early for Christmas decorations. And a little to hot for them. I ended up with sunburn that day… hardly christmas weather.

The V.A. Waterfront is kind of a nice place to walk around, it’s sort of just a big mall and harbour. There’s a lot of boat tours that dock out of there, and it’s also where the ferry picks up to take passengers over to Robben Island. During the day, especially on weekends, there’s often a lot of performers and musicians. We saw a guy breathing fire, and heard a lot of cool drumming.
