Yesterday evening I bundled up the kid to meet friends for supper at the Night Market at the Docklands Hotel. I've been to the market when its been at other venues around Durban, so was keen to see what it was like here.
The point area between the harbour and the beach is a strange, incoherent landscape of almost surreal contrasts, especially at night. Behind ruinous, old building facades with their patchwork of broken windows, the harbour cranes tower into the night sky like metal giants. Then you get to the market, which is tucked away in the courtyard of the Docklands Hotel, enchanting under its own starry sky of fairy lights. It's definitely worth a visit next time! So much fun.
Happy Women's Day everyone in South Africa!
