After a long and bumpy flight we arrived in Cape Town with the rising sun of the early morning. Getting off the airplane was like a double relief : walking (again) and discovering the warm and dry climate of South Africa.
I’ll make this post short. Because I’m completely exhausted. Air conditioning of the airplane (=cold), lack of sleep, and now a day being driven around town to check pre-production elements (stylism, life SFX, etc.) burnt all the energy I had left. No, no... no feet into the water or even on the beach. But I must admit that it feels good just to see landscapes, palm trees and blue (surfable) waves of the Atlantic sea.
Melting pot of thoughts of the day : people send you energizing smiles here and it feels good – waiting to get (simple) things make us wonder if we do things fast(er) or if they are done really slow here – coffee, fish and food are delicious – agency life doesn’t care about people being on a shooting (office mail box is already filled with cc. mails and “urgent – we know you’re out, probably can’t read your mails, but still please read and answer immediately” kind of messages) – just can’t read RSS and comment your posts tonight, sorry guys – I still think I could walk on these marshmallow clouds I saw from the window of the plane (thought coming back on every flight I’ve taken so far) ; ) - oh boy... it’s really time to sleep now!
