Cape Town, South Africa

V Waterfront, Cape Town, South Africa. Most beautiful, energy-filled place.

Afrikaans

Lag wanneer jy kan, sê jammer as jy moet, laat gaan wat jy nie kan verander nie

"Eish!" is South African slang for "Oh no!"

" is South African slang for "Oh no!" or "Oy vey!" - I've been known to say this, thanks to my South African bestie!

So maklik soos dit!!

Afrikaans - translation: "Weather prediction: If the rock moves - there is wind. If the rock is wet - it has rained. If the rock is white - it has snowed. If the rock is not visible - it is night. If the rock is gone - it has been stolen.

You know you're African when ... Or your kids call everyone "auntie" and "uncle" even if they've never met them before.

Applies mainly to South Africans - and it's so, so true! I had so many "tannies / aunties" and "ooms / uncles" growing up . A form of politeness for adults that the rest of the world has pretty much lost / left behind.
