Paul arrived late last night. In a mild fog, we set out to espresso at Giovannis, right across from the new football stadium. A sausage vendor there told us we MUST leave right away to go to the Old biscuit Mill. What a great recommendation, it's the place to be on a Saturday morning and early afternoon!

an old brick biscuit mill has been converted to a bunch of small shops. There's also a large, indoor farmers market/prepared food selling and eating area. Between the two is a parking lot filled with happy people drinking beer, wine, whatever, and eating the really, really good food from the foodstands. The people watching was excellent!

Espressolabs coffee roasters told us to visit the second best roaster (per them), Origins. that was a find since it's 2 blocks from our apartment!

After the Mill, we went for a toe-chilling quick jump into Clifton Bay beach. 

We dined at 95 Keerom, a gourmet Italian, local African ingredient restaurant. Among us, we had carpaccio, kudu, ostrich, wildebeest (gnu), lamb, and springbok. If it has four hooves, we ate it that night!  The setting was beautiful, and the food very, very nice.
