A More Perfect Capetonian Saturday

I didn’t know it was possible, but this was an even more perfect Saturday. After waking up early we climbed Lion’s Head for a full moon sunrise hike. If Table Mountain was a hike, this was a climb. Truly scaling the side of the mountain it was a workout, but one of my best experiences in Cape Town.

With the beautiful views fresh in our minds we went down to the Old Biscuit Mill for breakfast. I shared an omelet and waffle with Naba as we sipped some slow brewed coffee. Fed and happy we returned to the Manor, where we stayed for our time in Cape Town, and met up with some of the other girls before heading out to another market.

The Bay Harbour Market in Hout Bay is a bit of a drive, but completely worth it. With only one small entrance and exit, the market opens up with string-lights and shop after shop. Turning the corner suddenly there is a encompassing volume of live music, food vendors and a beautiful porch overlooking the water of the bay.

My name is Christina and I am thrilled to be in Cape Town. Originally from Long Island, I study Neuroscience and Studio Arts at the University of Rochester. With a life long passion for photography and medicine I am delighted to be documenting my experience in South Africa through a Public Health lens, but don&#39;t be surprised if there is also a lot of pictures of food, people and tourist-y things.</span></div>
