Goodbye to a dear father

The modern father of our nation and South Africa's favourite President died at the age of 95 last night on the 5th December 2013.

Nelson Mandela will be remembered as a world Statesman who brought unity to South Africa and peace to this part of Africa and a man loved by everyone.

CNN sets out well his life history and the passage to a peaceful transition from the National Party government pre-1994 to the democratic elections and the inauguration of our first black President under the new negotiated Constitution of the Republic. The Constitution introduced a Bill of Rights and widespread new freedoms for all citizens, regardless of race or gender. We salute you dear father and thank you for your gift to us all. May you Rest in Peace.

President Nelson Mandela

Facebook happenings

One of the good things about Facebook is that everyone is a contributor.. this makes it easy to keep up to date on happenings and events as they unfold from a wide readership base.



However, whilst facebook becomes an unfolding diary, there is a need to be able to categorise news, events and places and make them readily available at a click such as on blogger.

Here's the link to the Cape Town Pride Festival Facebook group which is pretty newsy and also a way to connect with Capetonians if you are coming to visit.

Gearing up for a Cape summer

Glimpses of Cape scenery

 
It's great to be a tourist in one's own country and we took my son's 21st birthday as an opportunity to show his mates a bit of the city. This is the view of Cape Town one can expect on arriving in South Africa's most beautiful city.
 
 
 

The Cape coast around Koel Bay


Camps Bay

Table Mountain from the N2


On the way to Stellenbosch - the wine farm area around Cape Town - there is the Cape Town film studios, so we grabbed a photo under the Universal Studios sign. In Stellenbosch where my son is studying engineering, the wine farms are fantastic and a wine-tasting or two or three is compulsory.

Awesome Flying trip to Cape Town

The four of us jumped in our two aeroplanes and did a 10-day round trip that took in the southernmost tip of Africa, south of Cape Town, then on to the Cape peninsular, Stellenbosch and then back to Durban. Will post a few of the Cape pics here over the next day or two including the great Shisa Men's resort in Tulbach.

Amsterdam in Cape Town

We spent a great few days in Cape Town, mainly to visit my son who is studying at Stellenbosch University, but also to visit some of the awesome gay venues in the city. We stayed at Amsterdam Guesthouse one of the more established men-only guesthouses, nestled at the foothills of table mountain.

Sunny deck above the pool
  Thanks Louwrens for looking after us so well at Amsterdam. The breakfasts were sumptuous and the Guesthouse is well located near the Kloof Nek road that takes you into the city, up Table Mountain or quickly to the other side of the peninsular to Camps Bay and Clifton Beaches.

Well recommended for a stay in Cape Town, and the Guesthouse also has a sauna and steam room next to the pool area so you can meet up with the other guys staying there.
