My sister lives right in the middle of the city. Its lovely. From her window you can watch the hustle and bustle and if you open it, hear all the city noise.
A few weeks ago it was the "opening of parliament" and for a few days before, marching bands could be heard practising in the streets.
I love marching bands, so on the day of the actual opening, we decided to take to the streets and together we felt proud to be South African and patriotically danced to the music.
Whenever I think about this day, I smile.
I feel so blessed.
Amazing family and friends, a wonderful city and beautiful country. What more can one possibly want?
A permanent marching band would be a welcome addition though!
