GRAHAMSTOWN NOTES 3 (article first published : 2000-07-5)

The weather here is simply superb with the sun shining all day and the evenings cool but still warm enough to go without all the paraphernalia usually trekked to Grahamstown, like coats, scarves, gloves and boots. Most of the time in the cold weather, it’s difficult to recognise fellow Durbanites, they have so many clothes on!

At night, if you move away from the city lights and festival buzz to where you can see the stars clearly, there’s a brilliant “show” in performance right above our heads. The spectacular night sky offers a splendid view of the Milky Way, something we don’t get to see too well in Durban. Last night the moon was a thin sickle of deep orange lying as if it was the bottom curve of a circle. “Ah,” says my husband’s aunt with whom I’m staying. “It’s holding the water. If it’s lying upright, then all the water will fall out.” So, that means that we are safe from rain for a few days!

I have seen some really good productions - watch out for the reviews on these pages.

Although there don’t seem to be as many people this year, KZN shows seem to be doing well and most artists I have spoken to are happy with their results so far.
