It was not difficult for my parents, brother and me to decide our annual holiday abroad. The consensus destination was Cape Town International Kite Festival South Africa falling in the month of October in the Muizenberg, in a beach side suburb of the city. We landed at the Cape Town the previous evening and stayed in a hotel near the airport. Next morning, we left for Muizenberg, south of Cape Town on the Atlantic coastline 25 km away. We hit the road at 8 in the morning. It was rush hour and we took 90 minutes to commute the distance. Muizenberg is named after the mountains that surround it. It is besides False Bay Coast situated in Cape Peninsula. It is beach resort on the side of Indian Ocean.
The drive till the destination was smooth and the scenery kept us occupied. On arrival, we checked into the hotel and were ready to enjoy the town. The international Kite festival has been hosted by this town for more than a decade now. The city has many categories of kite fliers most of them doing so for a hobby. The Festival participants are proficient kite flyers full of energy to bring laurels to the international event. Each year more than 20,000 tourists collect here to witness the show. In late October, it was the start of spring and fragrance filled the lazy breeze. Blooms were visible in and around the place.
