Down by the V&A Waterfront

The last place that we stopped in South Africa was the harbour. I guess I hadn't thought about it too much, but South Africa is really into all sorts of art. Modern art, traditional art, all sorts. And the harbour had this giant warehouse full of different artists selling stuff
at stalls. It was such a cool place. And the harbour itself is full of awesome little shops and restaurants. We did a little bit of shopping, and then wandered to a cafe overlooking the harbor. It was nice to watch the boats come in and out, although it is quite an industrial place.
After, we walked through the big mall they have there. Its full of a really random assortment of shops, some really low end, and then some really fancy stores. After we went through the mall, we walked around and looked at some of the statues they had of South Africans who have won Nobel Prizes, and all the pretty buildings. They have some really old fashioned classic buildings which are odds with the rest of the harbour!
We sadly did have to leave eventually, so we went back to Cape Town airport, and then took a domestic flight to Johannesburg. It was super weird when we were in Johannesburg airport - we arrives and it was super, super quiet, and a lot and lot of the lights were off. It turns out they had a power outage, and so o bags could come out. It was a bit chaotic, and we got to check in for our next flight in pitch darkness. We couldn't even get into the lounge for a bit because the power was out. It was such a crazy experience, but eventually we did get home in one piece!
