When you start your day with an early morning meeting in Cape Town and you have to travel down the N1 to get there. When you hate sitting in traffic and therefore leave before sunrise to miss it. These were prerequisites for the photo that inspired this early morning coffee picture. I am not a fan of traffic and given that at the V&A there is a 24hr McDonalds you can have a cup of coffee before your meeting, prepare and look at the amazing view.
The view includes the construction of the Zeitz MOCAA. I have spoken about this in a previous blog, although looking back I did not write much about it. I remember that it was because there is not that much information freely available on the net. There is an update on the Siloblog, which gives some pictures and a completion date of the end of 2016. Until the museum opens, the Zeitz MOCAA Pavilion is open with free admission. The pavillion can be found near Bascule Bridge at the V&A and is open from 12 – 8 PM, every Wednesday to Sunday.
The museum is going to provide a cultural boost to the area which should have a positive effect economically for the CBD. The development in this part of the V&A are providing a link to the CBD.
Do not wait until 2016 to visit Cape Town for this awesome new museum, come to Cape Town this Summer and then again next year. I can tell you right now that there is more than enough to do here and it would take years of trips to get it all done.
