TravelPod Member ReviewsBrenwin Guest House Cape Town
What a fantastic guesthouse! We slept in the best best ever, you never want to get out! But you also don't want to miss the delicious breakfast! The ladies were great and we got great advise and help from Pam and her husband (the owners).
We stayed here for 4 nights, sad to leave but we will come back in Capetown!

The idea of today's trip was to learn a little about what went on during Apartheid. We were collected from the apartment in a minibus and taken to 'district 6'. This district of Cape Town was completely flattened by the government of the day in order to force the blacks out of the city, which lead to the development of the Townships we hear so much about. This 'process' was called 'forced removal' and was the main reason that the Townships we here so much ...
... oh, oh. And must be fairly integrated as this will mean a total power shutdown of (full) plane for 15 minutes "or so"... Um, that's not good. Lights go down, Aircon dies, my movie stops...we sit.... Lights now on, Aircon comes back, ( no movie yet, but hey, we have 11 hours over Africa..... ) Now, what did James say happens if they don't reset Windows? "Plane shuts down and falls out of sky", wasn't it? Over Africa. Wonderful. Moral of story: I shouldn't read ...
... and in the early afternoon Paul rallied Jen, Christine, Drea, Aly and me for a walk into town while Jess stayed behind to read and relax and Leonie continued her visit. Prior to doing this, however, we did a quick welfare check on JW who had yet to emerge from his locked bedroom and who we could not hear responding to our knocks and calls to wake up. This check may or may not have involved me climbing from Leonie's balcony next door to his to look in ...
... this is the second time a UVA alumni has given me a visa interview. Both times I've seen the consular officer's eyes light up when they realize they're talking to a fellow wahoo. I hope Al Qaeda and ISIS don't start sending promising terrorists to UVA... If so, UVA's scenic surroundings, gorgeous women and rampant boozing would probably turn them... After the interview I sat down at a cafe and was faced with a bit of a dilemma on what to do next. I was spoilt ...
... has creeped me out a bit too I must say. The neighbour was 75 but seemed quite healthy and spritely when she was here. Very sad. Hopefully everyone feels better after a good night’s sleep, and tomorrow is a new day :)
Looking forward to Easter Sunday tomorrow and a hike and picnic with the family here, as well as hopefully a few Skype calls back home to the family there. Mikey is already snoring next to me so time to sign off for now ...
