I was rushing through the Company Gardens which flank Parliament on a desperate mission to find a bathroom when I spotted her. It was love at first sight. The kind that makes you forget a full bladder. Meet Amelia (in my haste I didn’t get her surname).
Pint-sized and gorgeous, this two-year old was absolutely determined to move chess pieces her size and bigger.
And then she got a little bit coy and hid in her “Fortress”.
I love how Cape Town’s inner city public open spaces are so full of surprises at every turn, especially in the Company Gardens.
