How well do you know Cape Town? Ok let me be more specific, how well do you know the history of Cape Town?
Yesterday saw two teams take part in the 2017 edition of THE CITY STREET RACE, a race around the streets of Cape Town while solving clues and answering questions. Yes this might sound similiar the the Amazing Race, and for those of you who know me you’ll know I’m up for any adventure so ofcourse I was in one of the teams – Team Flying Fish
It was us against The Skyscrapers, initially I thought we could make friends and work together but with only two teams this was not possible we were in it to win it, after a quick briefing we were off to explore the city.
Like flying fish we swam/flew through the streets solving some of the clues with ease plus taking pictures along the way but to our annoyance we were stumped with one question.
Do it in luxury. At what time did the coach tours leave the parade every friday?
Without order nothing can exist – without chaos nothing can evolve, these words summed up the experience when we eventually found the answer.
The race tested our physical and mental toughness as well as friendship….my friends learnt that if I were to choose someone to be the President it’ll have to be Bart Simpson…..this is obvious guys really.
Life is too important to take seriously – We had so much fun along the way asking people for help, it was all worth it in the end as we were victorious getting the co-ordinates to our final destination and arriving first – TEAM FLYING FISH are the winners of The City Street Race at Open Streets Cape Town.
Thank you to everyone involved and all participants,was an awesome experience and remember – Good things often happen if you answer the question “Are you lost?” with “I haven’t showered today.”
