... for the ostrich pie. A great choice, really like ostrich meat! We got back to Ashanti Gardens at 6pm giving me the time to get to the launderette. Went to Da Vincis for dinner, third visit there and every meal has been fantastic, would recommend it to anyone. Then headed into Long Street and the Dubliner, the band wasn't as good as previously but I still really like the place, good atmosphere and feels really safe. We even braved a walk home after midnight and it was fine. Worst ...

... sup>th of January". We tried to beg a little bit, soften the vendorīs heart…it didnīt work out. All tickets were hopelessly sold out! They didnīt even expect to have any cancellations. Everybody simply wanted to see a place where Madiba spent 18 years of his entire imprisonment. We just couldnīt believe it. To leave Cape Town without visiting Robben Island was just unimaginable for us. We walked away and sat down for a while. Both of us were desperate. We exhausted ...

... I don't think I've mention this, but everywhere we've gone that are freelance parking attendants working for tips and we usually give them 5 Rand which is about 50 cents. They locate open parking spaces and watch your vehicle while you're gone and sometimes even help you carry your items to your vehicle or push your shopping cart for you.

Since we got a late start out of Joburg and stopped to buy memory foam, Peter and I ...
