    As an HI employee, I always am excited to stay in other Hostelling International hostels. And thankfully, 33 South did not disappoint. The staff were extremely friendly, the vibe was hip and local, and everything was a great value. I definitely met a number of people and could not have been more happy with the experience.

    Today we arrived in Bangkok and my gosh it was Hot! Taking a taxi from the airport to our hotel did not end well, as the taxi man was charging us for all the tolls and we wasn't sure if this was right, having been warned by friends before hand that taxis are dodgy in Bangkok from the airport and always rip you off.. Arriving safely at our hotel, Chillax Resort which was really nice with a roof top infinity pool. Just what we needed after a long flight from ...

    ... Z told us to order - yummy!

    We went to an ostrich farm. I hate live ostrich but I love dead ones (ostrich leather.) When I first started working in the late 1960’s I bought a lime green ostrich wallet. I actually saw one just like it but I no longer carry a wallet. I bought the cheapest handbag they had along with a credit card case and keychain.

    We were able to skype with my husband but we have to stand by the door to get internet service - ...

    ... was Thandeka, a jovial African woman, really lovely. Phil, the owner and his team are truly caring. They offered to mail several post cards for us, they reserve at restaurants, they book tickets for various activities and they arrange transport. At their recommendation, we decide to ride "the red bus" which is a hop on, hop off bus. Our first visit is to District 6 museum. This museum chronicles the effect of apartheid on the day to day ...

    ... on the lawns of the castle relaxing for a bit before continuing on. We went to Zula Cafe for snacks, a traditional African bar and restaurant. I got mushrooms and they were pretty scary. I think I ate two and tasted more dirt than mushroom. Surrender. Then to Cafe Sante for dinner. The idea was a "progressive dinner" so apps one place, dinner in another. Trying again, margarita pizza. Yum. Be thinking of my student as I ...

    ... this place? A quick stroll on the beach every morning, and a bike ride to Hand Spring for her work. She will miss this! Time for lunch, so we stopped in Kalk Bay for some fresh fish & chips. Kalk Bay is a fishing village, and there is a wonderful little outdoor "chipper" near the fishing pier. After lunch, entertainment was provided as we strolled along the fish mongers and fishing boats that arrived to sell their catch. Near the end of the pier were two ...
