    The ten hour flight from Singapore was eased by the lay flat beds in Singapore Airlines Business Class and the attention of the cabin crew and the food made the trip a breeze. First impressions, well it is amazing to see so many black people occupying almost all of the jobs, a sight you do not get in Aus.

The night turned a little messy with the last game being brought out after another bout of 30 seconds being 'shots and ladders' where pretty much no matter what you do, it ends in you having to drink a shot.

    ... with a café latte in Stellenbosch and go for wine tastings in the evening, but if we would only want that we could have stayed at home in Paris. Eastern Cape delivered just what it was suppose to, a different South Africa.
