I live in Cape Town at the moment. In case you didn’t know, Cape Town is basically the most hipster city on the planet. If you’ve never heard that then, well, that kind of proves my point. Now, eve…
My sister has a very interesting perspective on life. This is I think her fifth post on her new blog, and definitely worth the couple minutes it takes to read.
