Escape to another world
Just as I arrived at the clay cafe my cell phone bleeped. A message from Z :" What you doing?"
I told her I had just arrived at the clay cafe, asked if she wanted to join. Another bleep: " Actually, I wanted to go to Stellenbosch."
Cool I thought packed everything away and drove back to the city, my other wise relaxing drive was hastened. It wasn't exactly early.
Z fetch me at 3ish and we arrived at about quarter to four. At that point all seemed normal, except that we both are a bit mad to go this late to Stellenbosh. Most shops close around 5, and the trip was supposed to be a research trip to find cool shops where Z could get new distributors for her fabulous shoes.
Suddenly we realised how different it was, how different it felt
We sort of forgot the mission and just drifted from one to the next amazing shop
Discovering beautiful details everywhere
Roaming through the streets of this little town, even though the shops had closed
We felt like we were far far away from home
in a different world, maybe magical
and stayed until well after sun set
on our trip home we both felt like we were returning from a long holiday and agreed to do this again very soon
(but next time maybe leave a wee bit earlier)
