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.

Cape Town - Part 6


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.

Cape Epic Special


I'm interrupting my Cape Town series for the Cape Epic that's happening right now. We get to see a bit of the action from our balcony and kitchen window. Cyclists from around the world are testing their skills on the rough terrain in this semi-desert. Click on the images to view them larger. It makes a big difference.

This time the cyclists won't be returning. They are on their way to Wellington, cycling through the scenic, yet precarious Bains Kloof Pass.
