Cape Town Goes Bollywood

Life in Cape Town – Savoring the Summer

So I’ve been away from Cape Town for an extended spell, crisscrossing the U.S. and heading Down Under for a couple of weeks in Australia in the middle. It’s been a great trip, but I have to admit, I’ve been bummed about missing out on the last few months of […]
