I will never forget the holiday Buki went back home and had to make “pap” – UMQOMBOTHI – and beer for her family, friends and ancestors…she showed me some pics as proof!
I was soooo impressed with all her skills! I would like to show off what I mean 🙂
Then, as if UK wasn’t enough (check older posts with some pics on the 2 month tour we had with Cape Town Opera), there was the amazing experience of Melbourne, Australia….who doesn’t want to see that part of the world? Obviously it was amazing, but enormous. It is big, and very far. We had crazy jet-lag and were very tired throughout the week. Still it was an enormous honour to experience. We found the people very friendly. They have this weird way of asking how are you, like “how you going today?” Really? How you going? Im going fine thanks! It was fun though. We felt very safe, although its is such a big place, but there is lots of young and funky people. One of the bestest memories of this time will stay the trumpet player along the Yarra river one night in the waterfront, playing tunes that filled the air with a dreamy atmosphere. This magic and also the audience’s appreciation of South African talent will stay with us forever. They were in awe. Looking forward to go back there someday and flaunt our amazing dresses again. Look here to see what I mean!!
Ok, maybe you can’t see much, but at least we look splendid don’t we? It is so amazing to have such amazing team of people make such AMAZING dresses for you. I must say, we can’t use the word “amazing” enough. That really sums up the year that has been. And the team, we cannot be more grateful. Life gives us more than we ever thought we could get out off.
There were some memorable artwork down the line, used in the form of EP covers, business cards and the whole nine yards…
And then of course, we practically ended the year of with the best time of our lives, the most amazing people we could work with from all over the world and the best photos…
Oh yes, we can’t forget the Berlin’s theatre awesome canteen..it really had the best cake for sommer cheap-cheap!
