WIth some of the many kids in Zone J who walked around the township with us.
This was a wonderful day for me as a tourguide as I found Elaine to be person with a great ability to communicate as well as to understand what was being communicated to her. Furthermore she had a good sense of humour and was very easy to get on with. We clicked instantaneously after starting our travels in the Winelands resulting in what turned out to be a wonderful tour day for me and I think for her too.
THANKS FOR ALL ELAINE

Am having a great cruise. Managed to get on the internet and see the photos you took of our trip in Cape Town, thank you for your kind words
at the end.
It was a great day out, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and it was the high-light of my trip. When Crystal Serenity was sailing out of Cape Town, I really felt upset, there was so much more I would have like to
have done. All being well I shall return one day, preferably sooner than later.
In the meantime, keep healthy and happy and continue your wonderful work.
p.s. Met Jeannie and Jerry, there are a lovely fun couple, I think they
are going to send you a photo!
