    ... is a rather extended affair so by the time we have finished it is nearly midnight and way past Rod and Audrey's bedtime. Rod tries to order a Uber taxi but cannot get his App to work.

    ... over! I do not know what the chef did to this bite but it was a taste explosion. I cannot begin to explain what this tasted like but I almost kissed the waitress when she brought over the second order. Dessert was a layered ice cream dish with a whiskey cappuccino foam on it that was a delightful end to a fantastic meal. Did I mention the pork belly?

    ... times. When we got to the Iziko South African Museum it was closed. We asked an older woman (with no teeth) about it. We got an earful from a white traditionalist who probably liked apartheid. She said she would never go in that museum since it was a waste of her tax dollars! We couldn’t wait to get away from this crazy lady.

    After a long walk we couldn’t find a cab so we went into a really nice hotel and ...
