About 3 weeks ago Nats and I went to the SA national gallery to see Vladimir Tretchikoff’s exhibition. Found some of it quite scary but there’s no denying that this was a talented artist.
Going just reminded me of a time when me and Nats used to go out every lunch time and go to museums and art galleries (one of the perks of working in the city) including a launch of shoe range at the iart gallery. Although now we both to busy to do this often so it was nice to soak up some culture on a Saturday afternoon, which was followed by lunch at Seven Sins in Kloof Street (gotta love Cape Town)
Some notable things to go check out:
The Slave Lodge in Adderley Street
The Castle of Good Hope, one of SA’s oldest buildings built between 1666 and 1679 (I can still remember the 5 points: Buuren, Nassau, Oranje, Leerdam and Catzenellenbogen)
Gold Museum in Strand Street
District 6 Museum
Doesn’t going to the museum or planetarium make you feel nostaligic and remind you of school excursions?
So be a tourist in your own city and you’ll probably learn something new.
