Friday 15 December is the traditional day for the start of the festive season in Cape Town. Most factories close and many people start their journeys to the Eastern Cape. In government today is also the last day for payments to be made so there is a sense of urgency in air as many people will only be back at office after 8 January. So today it took me two hours in traffic to get to the venue! IM so glad the weekend I will be better off!
