MOCAA Cape Town Opening Event.

Opening celebration with many different african designers…

I was wearing an Agatha Ruiz de la Prada Gala dress for that day. I thought was very appropriate for this event and I enjoyed a lot.

A major new cultural institution is being created in the historic Grain Silo at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town. It is called Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA) in honour of the renowned Zeitz Collection, that will form the museum’s founding collection, and the support of Jochen Zeitz of the programming and acquisition funds.

That was a great day a beautiful Gala with very interesting people from Africa-South Africa and from all over the world.

Thank you Mark Semonian, Thank you Jochen Zeitz.

Prince Albert and Red Mountain – South Africa

Well here we go again with more adventures in South Africa Flying to one of the closest airports to Prince Albert town, Oudtshoorn.


Depend of the area in South Africa is not good if you are in the country side to drive when the sun goes down , you are exposed to all type of danger it can be animal or some human risks . So it was a bit late and close to sundown we needed to cross the mountains to get to Prince Albert. We drove in a rented car almost alone through all the way that was really impressive thinking about what could us happened that night. finally we arrived in a good condition.


Nice and gentle town. Quite mixed. People super Chill nothing aggressive I was enjoying it…


It was full of cosy places to stay and eat. We ate very ealthy food. Also you can find natural products handmade and local. They are very aware about the importance of health and natural staff for yourself and for the world we live in.


After that we when were Red Mountain is. Amazing place and fabulous colors… in the way to this place we were whacking some giraffes or ostriches or Burritos :-)… ( not catalans by the way) and some another species like zebra …etc


We could hear the baboons at night time…not good idea to leave food outside.


If I thought I was in a Steven Spiellberg movie…that was the area just only we needed some dinosaurus  to be into his real movie. For sure he got inspire around…for sure…

Flying through Big Hole- Northern Cape – South Africa

The Big hole is in Kimberley called as well Kimberley Mine, in South Africa.

From 1871 to 1917. At about 6 o’ clock a.m everyday the workers queued in single file and trundled down the shafts and into the underground mine. There,  they collected cocopan loads of the blue ground (Kimberlite ore) that had been liberated  through  the blasting of the chamber walls.

The tunnels were insufferably hot and the loads heavy. The working day anded at 6 p.m and the workers returned to their compounds.

 On the way to the Big Hole we needed to add more gasoline and  we could see from the air how a Mine is with this type of shape. All the sand they take off form one place and they have to put in another. 

Here is Daniel Aeschlimann  taking a picture. 


And as a result this kind of scene is created in the air….
