So now that I am back and sweating (did I mention that already?) and have already visited all the neighbors as required, attended one funeral, and taken a friend to the hospital I am reimescining about our time of relaxing and eating and being cool in South Africa. So you will just have to tolerate my ramblings and gushing and posting billions of photos of our time there for a couple more posts….I promise.
Tim and Chloe graciously booked us 2 nights at a Westin hotel in Cape Town using their points. We so felt like complete out of place posers but we did not let that stop us from enjoying every minute. And check me out wearing jeans..holla!! The view of the city was awesome and the breakfast food was so yummy ( a bit of blue cheese may or may not have made its way inside my purse for later). Being complete urban-ites we loved every minute of wandering around the city. The first day we got up early and decided to climb Table Mountain.
Ask J if it was worth it? First steak in months!! We seriously had some of the best food of our lives in Cape Town!!
We also ventured to a small town about an hour outside the city called Franschhoek. It had lots of cute shops, restaurants, coffee shops, vineyards, orchards, and amazing views of the mountains.
gotta love Africa..rules are more of guidelines really
