Local Experts: Cape Town, Sarah Khan

I was an editor at Travel + Leisure when I traveled to Cape Town on a whim and fell in love—with both the city and with a South African. These days you'll find me freelancing full time from under the shadow of Table Mountain. My travel writing assignments often take me far from Cape Town, but on my rare weekends at home I'm usually grabbing breakfast at one of the weekly local markets, exploring Cape Town's quirky neighborhoods, hopping in the car for a road trip to one of its scenic suburbs, or chowing on chops at a braai. My writing appears in Travel + Leisure, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and many other outlets, and you can follow my African adventures as The South AfriKhan.
