Pynck In Town: Cécile’s Top Picks Of What’s On In Cape Town, January 2021
Hi, welcome to a sizzling hot January in Cape Town! From my penthouse apartment in the city centre overlooking majestic Table Mountain – the sea to the south and the bustling city below – I can keep my finger firmly on the pulse of all that’s happening in the city.
