CAPE TOWN WEEKEND

Back in Jozi after the most awesome weekend EVER!!!! Will post pics sometime this week, but it was just the best weekend ever... It got off to a frustrating start though, as my plane was delayed due to 'technical difficulties'... exactly what you want to hear before you depart... So I only arrived in CT at 10:40pm, but Louz, Carli and I stayed up and chatted 'till way after midnight.

On Sat we went to a food market (lots of organic stuff etc) at the Old Biscuit Mill, then to Simons Town for sight-seeing/coffee, the off to the V&A waterfront for shopping and calamari and chips. We still wanted to go for a cocktail, but were so tired by that time we just went home and chilled and laughed our heads off etc.

Yesterday morning we went for breakfast in Camps Bay with 2 of my varsity friends who are working as architects in CT now, Leandre and Riaan. Had the most delicious honey-nuts-yoghurt-berry thing... afterwards we went for a stroll on the beach (weather was PERFECT the entire time), and had THE BEST ICE-CREAM IN THE WORLD from a place caled Sinfull... the name says it all, trust me...

After that we went to visit another friend, Helene, who stays in Seapoint... and found out that Carli had forgotten her phone in Camps Bay... so then we had an Amazing Race type rush to get the phone back and get me to the airport in time for my flight!!! Very exciting. Well we succeeded and got the phone and made it to the airport in time.

Luckily the plane wasn't delayed again, and even though we had bad turbulance and thunderstorms, we got back to JHB in time. Chris was waiting for me at the airport, we had supper at Spur, and the home....

Pretty tired to day, as you can imagine... and have loads of washing to do and cooking supper tonight, so my day is going to be prety domesticated today. Just what I need to bing me back down to earth after a stunning weekend! Hope yours was fine too...

Next time you visit Cape Town, try staying in the South Peninsula. Life's a lot less hectic out here and you can really relax. http://www.sitara.co.za

Fun to read about your busy life! Am from the USA and was interested in your CTown blogs as my D is moving there in January. Back here (in northern US), its cold (very) and snowy, so the Cape Town summer is going to be so nice. It brings such a smile to my face to read about your current good health - living your life to the fullest the way you seem to be doing is such a great way to honor this newfound health. Cheers and best wishes to you.
