Cape Town’s little heat wave

Lying on the beach
I think somehow things got confused and all the heat destined Europe got misplaced and routed to Cape Town. It's swelteringly hot down here with temperatures to remain high until the end of the week - cooling over the weekend.

I checked my car's external thermometer and it's reading was 38°C in Cape Town, with the temperature increasing as one travels more inland towards Stellenbosch and Paarl. If it were possible to package and ship heat, we'd be making a small fortune.

You may be wondering why the beach isn't as packed with bodies as one would expect on such a warm day. There wasn't much opportunity for me to get to the beach - so I grabbed this photo from my December archive. I can however pretty much guarantee you that Clifton is *far* more crowded than this on days like today!
