Flood Rain in the Village

Since yesterday heavy rains. The forecast is over 10cm of rain during this weekend.

Two pictures shot this morning in our street. Luckily we are high up. Further on towards Cape Town, in Somerset West, a hospital had to be evacuated and the Cape Flats (‘townships’) are flooded. My thoughts are with all those unfortunate.

Street Art 1

Some snap shots I took this morning of ‘Street Art’ in the so called ‘colored area’ in our village. All paintings made by local artist Slamat. He is a self taught painter and he focusses himself merely on flora and fauna. Slamat loves gardening and it seems to me that gardening and painting are going well together. Today is the Viva Art Fest in the village. A group of artists are trying to involve local people from the ‘Colored Area’ to participate in wall painting. If this works out you’ll see the results tomorrow.
