My Tiny House In Observatory – Cape Town, South Africa


This is the house I’ve rented in Cape Town, South Africa (in a neighborhood called “Observatory”). The owners of the house usually live here and rent out their spare bedroom for extra income, but I lucked out and rented their spare bedroom during a time when the owners were away on vacation in Ghana. So instead of renting just a room in a house (which is common in South Africa), I have an entire place to myself!









While I’m here, however, I do have to babysit the house a little. I have to water the plants, feed the fish, and take care of an all-white, female cat named Charlie.
