Travel Blogs from Franschhoek

A taste of fine wine

A travel blog entry by shamiandlauren


Today is our full day in Franschhoek. We started our morning with breakfast at the guest house. They serve such good food in South Africa. The cold bar has muesli, yoghurt, honey, a few cereals and fresh orange juice and coffee. The coffee is delish here too! You also have the option of ordering eggs cooked how you like, sausage, tomatoes, …

So I tried to convince myself exams would be fun. Sometimes I am able to do this about things like job interviews, going to the dentist, and working 12 hour days in the infant room at the daycare. (Yeah, those somehow all go in the same category for me). So that was the approach I tried to take to these exams- 60 minute long oral exam in Afrikaans- sounds great! 20 page paper on Truth Commissions in Africa- yippee! This attitude lasted for a good 30 seconds or ...
