I was at the carnival last Thursday evening and it was actually really fun. I wish I hadn't eaten before I got there though. There was some yummy food on offer and I was too full to have any... but eventually I caved - hehehe. It's the first time I went to a fair and felt like I was in a movie - you know they always have fun-looking carnivals with rides and prizes and candy floss (or cotton candy) where you see a couple in love walking around and he wins her a prize (usually a huge teddy bear) and then they go on the big wheel ..etc
My experience wasn't exactly like that, but it was pretty close. I won a....toothbrush..YAY! Hahaha. The rides were really fun - even though after I finished my second one I was done for the day. They're much scarier than I remember. That, or I was just more brave back then.

Entrance was R20 - but in true Cape Flats style, we bought tickets outside from two youngsters trying to get rid of their comps for half-price :-)
1. Bonus half-price entry fee.
2. Rosenkuchen - delicious
3. The Tornado
