LWF Digital Storytelling training, Maputo

First day was mostly story sharing and selection of a story to focus on. Second day was plotting the story and drawing scenes and characters on paper. At the end of the section we started to work on digital drawings. So far it feels quite promissing to have some results by end of next week.

Eventful days in Cape Town

On Monday we drove to Langebaan for a visit at the famous Strandloper restaurant. A 10 course meal prepared on the beach over open fire was served where your knife and fork was a pair of mussel shells. Yesterday we visited the Two Oceans Aquarium at the waterfront before boarding the boat to the historical Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years. As the weather was permitting we decided to also squeeze in a sunset visit to the top of table mountain, we were however not the only ones and got stuck on the mountain as we had to wait for hours to eventually catch the last cabin car down at 22:30.

New Year Celebrations Cape Town

Had a delicious dinner at an Ethiopian restaurant on New Years eve followed with joining the crowds to watch the pathetic fireworks at waterfront. The first day of the new year we spent at Kirstenbosch gardens listening to Mango Groove where everyone was dancing except the Swedes.
