Cape Town - Part 9


In March, Hubby and I went to the Taj in Cape Town for my 40th birthday. One of the restaurants at the Taj is called the Mint where we ate dinner and the following morning breakfast.

I was blessed that my in-laws could stay with the kids and take them to school the next day, so that we could get away for the night. On my birthday 20 years ago, we had our first dinner date at the Taj in Mumbai (it was Bombay at the time). I was given vouchers for the Taj in Cape Town as a Christmas gift from our friend who I featured in Part 7. The gift couldn't have come at a better time with me celebrating my 40th birthday and us celebrating the 20th anniversary of our first date.


Mr.Wiseman pouring the wine
He was a fabulous host.

Cheers!

Robbie ordered the tornado, just like he
did at the Taj in Mumbai 20 years ago.

I ordered the pasta like I had 20 years ago.
Robbie's tornado was fabulous, but my
pasta was a disappointment.

The complimentary dessert platter
was wonderful.

This was part of the breakfast buffet.
I enjoyed the huge selection.

Camps Bay and the
Codfather Restaurant


My cousin and his girlfriend flew out from Switzerland with two of their friends for a holiday in South Africa. We met them in Camps Bay, Cape Town and had lunch at the Codfather.

Cape Town - Part 7


We took Jeremiah to Banana Jam Cafe for some craft beer tasting. It was soon after his 18th birthday (drinking age in South Africa) and a few weeks before he left for his first year at university. It was our first time going to Banana Jam and we invited a friend who lives in Cape Town to meet us there. On the website, it says that they have the best selection of craft beer in South Africa. If you like craft beer, spicy food, and reggae decor, then you'll enjoy it here. My only complaint was that my pizza was a tough.

World of Birds - Part 4

Vogelpark bei Kapstadt


Today's photos are some of my favorite from our visit to World of Birds. I'm ending off this mini series with photos of the gorgeous plants, adorable monkeys and a few other animals. Amanda had an amazing experience by the squirrel monkeys. The statue of the gorilla is life-size.

All the children were instructed to sit still and keep their hands on their laps while the squirrel monkeys played around them.

Wild Iris - native to South Africa
I fell in love with the wild iris soon after making South Africa my home. It's still one of my favorite flowers. I painted the one below on silk for my mother-in-law in 1995.


This is the end of the World of Birds mini series inside my Cape Town series. Next week I'll continue with more of the exciting city of Cape Town.

In case you missed it, I interrupted my series last week to cover the Cape Epic, an international off-road cycling race.
