On to the WinelandsDecember 9, 2008 • By Kelly Glynn
Spent yesterday on Robben Island. If I could understand the guide correctly (because I am hard of hearing and I don’t quite understand their version of Spanglish which is a mix of Afrikans and English so maybe they call it Africanlish) he was a former prisoner for 4 years. It was a pretty humbling experience and genuinely makes you appreciate the States for our coat of many colors.
Tried shopping a bit but it is really not that much fun when you cannot buy anything. I had to get my fix through Jill who purchased some artwork. I could have gone to down on a sailboat painting but $500 could also buy me a few meals and I had to say no. My will power was surely tested.
Had lunch at an amazing tapas place called FORK. I highly recommend the seared tuna. We met a crazy girl from the UK who has been traveling and working for the last year and has been all the way to Japan and now back here. I admire her tenacity because I don’t think I could work in a bar in every foreign land.
If you visit Cape Town and you enjoy all types of food, please try Anatoli a Turkish gem we found. The food was incredible and we both had a chance to flirt with the owner’s nephew a fine 25 year-old Turkish delight. It doesn’t take much to humor us.
I am still working on the pictures. As many of you know, my technology skills are not the finest and I need a camera shop. The suspense is building I know.
Kelly good to follow your fun. Have a glass of wine for Bill and I.
