I met up with  Sandy per phone via Steven Fine while she was on safari with him. We arranged to meet in Cape Town and I collected her from the Cape Town airport on 7 June in the evening. Sandy was starving so off we went to the Sushi Master in Cape Town for a late dinner. After this I took Sandy to the Holiday Inn where she checked in for the night.

On this day Bafana Bafana (South African soccer team) were playing against Slovenia in the World Cup so Sandy and I went off to Kayamandi to watch the game in the Township. After the game which SA happily won we toured the township. After this event we went on a tour of the winelands.

 

We toured Stellenbosch University and I took this picture of Sandy in front of the Universities sportfields

We skipped touring on the Sunday because of the weather but on the Monday as the sun came out we decided to travel on the Cape Peninsula.

13 June 2002

Sandy checked out at Serenite' Wellness and as we had a short day and it was raining we decided to travel to Klein Constantia winefarm.

After traveling through Hout Bay and the Atlantic seaboard we stopped in for a great lunch at the Raddison Hotel before I took Sandy to the airport to catch her return flight to Johannesburg.


It was absolutely wonderful to tour with Sandy as she was a very adventurous traveler who would be happy to try anything. She was also very spontaneous in her decisions and as this suited me down to a tee with my style of touring I enjoyed touring her through Cape Town immensely. All in all this was a wonderful journey for both Sandy and me through my hometown.

THANKS A TON SANDY!

Hello Selwyn!

I'm just now getting out from underneath all the email i had incoming for
over two weeks. Thank you so much for kind words. my spirits were lifted.

I too really enjoyed your company, it was like being with a good, old friend
even though we only just met. I look forward to seeing you again, who knows
- perhaps at a castle or an opera somewhere in Europe. I certainly want to
return to CT, maybe when the weather is better.

Everyone enjoyed the website but no one could see the panorama's for some
reason. They just don't show up. Could you send me the pics in jpg
format?

Gotta run - we'll keep in touch.

Regards,
Sandy

Selwyn,

Many thanks for taking care of Sandy so well. I'm sure by now you realize
that she is a very special employee and that we could ill-afford to loose
her to a crocodile or even to permanent residence in Capetown, which she
definitely seems to be considering.

Also, I have had the pleasure of sampling your fine local moonshine, Marula
(sp?). It's great!

Regards/

Hank Wendling
