Mandibles, Woodstock Foundry - Cape Town

Back to the real grey London world with a bump and Cape Town is a distant memory already. So here is a little post to remind me of my absolute best find in the city. Mandibles is located in the uber cool Woodstock Foundry and is the most beautiful taxidermy shop run by Julia Jaki and Philipp Schulz.  Philipp is the taxidermist. Julia is pictured above and is real, not stuffed. Needless to say I went home armed with many skulls, horns and eggs and a beautiful Blesbok winging its way to me in the South African Post!

Kirstenbosch Gardens - Cape Town

I'm coming to the end of my six weeks here in Cape Town and so I had to make sure I photographed the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Nestled in the slopes at the base of Table Mountain, it is a vast tropical haven. And an amazing backdrop for their summer sunset concerts.
