What you've been doing

After our tour of Robben Island we drove out to the Cape winelands, north-east of Cape Town. There’s tons of wineries in the area and they come in all sizes. The growing areas are Stellenbosch, Franschoek, Wellington and Paarl. These are the facts and now it becomes blurry … I think I had one too many samples … we went to Paarl … I remember goats in a tower … very strange … Fairview winery, I think, “goats do roam” … oh yes, now I remember, we also had some delicious cheese there! … but too many people, not enough pigs, very crowded … then there’s a blank … maybe pigs really shouldn’t drink … at one point we were at Glen Carlou winery and I know this just because there are some pictures of me in the cellar … wait, it’s coming back … dimly lit room, big wooden table, very quiet there, kind of the opposite of Fairview… ok, I think I’ll have to leave it at that … too much wine … no idea how I got back to the hotel ;-)

Cheers, Livi
