Cape Town frequently gets voted as one of the world’s most beautiful cities. I think it is a combination of mountains, ocean and charming buildings that does the trick for most. I do official know the reasons to visit Cape Town which make it so very appealing. I remember a time when I was incredibly grateful to have a commute with either a mountain or an ocean view, I tend to not be awed by the city’s beauty anymore. I lived there for too long and with that, I think came a mix of taking it for granted and also being able to look behind the scenes. The traffic is still horrid, all charming buildings are owned by white people and the mountain regularly burns because people are assholes.
They say, the cure for anything is saltwater. Sweat, tears or the sea.
Technically I knew this, but it never rang so true as after the last couple of days. In fact, I had no idea that I needed curing of anything…
I have had many perfect days in Marrakech but this time around my last day was especially perfect and I thought I should share in case you need some inspiration on how to spend a great day in my favorite city.
My day started with a driver from the Royal Mansour taking me to La Mamounia where I spent the last night. That was a bit funny because the two are the two most luxurious hotels in town and basically archenemies. Well no, of course not, but I dare say they are each other’s best competition. Over the course of the day, I recognized quite a few guests I had seen at Royal Mansour before, obviously, I wasn’t the only one switching sides.
