Rus en Vrede, Stellenbosch,
Bani Bagoto and Rozendal
I met Peggy and Steve at Die Dorpshuis in Stellenbosch and after spending about an hour in the car discussing the history of South Africa we set off on our Winelands tour.
Our first stop was in Kayamandi where the following pictures were taken.

Peggy passes out the "only one per child " command. J
We travelled on to Shumi Ndlebe's house where we told us her life story.
We moved on to Rust en Vrede where I took the above photograph.
We then travelled back to Kayamandi so as to enjoy a choir practice evening with the choir Bani Bagoto (Children of peace) where the following three pictures were taken.
After our time with the fabulous choir we traveled to Cathbert Country House where we unpacked took a short rest and then travelled to Rozendal Restaurant for a wonderful dinner.
Paarl, Franschhoek and Cathbert

We stopped in for a wonderful chicken in pineapple lunch at La Grange restaurant
Desert was enjoyed at the Huguenot Chocolate factory.
We stopped in at Boschendal on our way back to Cathbert.
In the evening we had a fabulous meal under the stars at Cathbert Country House. Lots of liquid was consumed as can be seen from the below two photos. J J
Stellenbosch, Cape Town and the Africa Cafe
We packed up at Cathbert and left the guesthouse so as to return to Cape Town. We first stopped in at Muratie winefarm where we tasted some Port as well as some "Amber" sweet wine.
We took this picture outside the strawberry farms at Mooiberg.
In Cape Town we paid a visit to the colourful Bo Kaap (Upper Cape Town) area.
We did a tour of Cape Town with amongst other visits to The Dutch Reformed Church as well as St.George's Cathedral
Steve and Peggy at the Mount Nelson Hotel.
We had a great curry lunch at Zoeriena's restaurant. Steve called the meal " food for the soul" J J
After our city tour I took Steve and Peggy to Avanti guesthouse where they had a rest before I collected them in the evening to visit the Africa Cafe.
On our way to the Africa Cafe we stopped to take the following two sunset photographs.
The Africa Cafe was a fantastic way to end a fabulous day!
Robben Island and Waterfront
I fetched Steve and Peggy from Avanti and took them to the Robben Island ferry where they started there journey to The Island. I collected them after their tour and we went to Den Anker for a great lunch comprising mainly of mussels.
This was the last photo I took of this wonderful couple before I took them to the Cape Town airport to start their travels back to the USA
This was such a wonderful tour that it is hard to find words to describe it. It certainly was a relaxing journey through The Winelands and Cape Town as we never pushed to see "more" and did all our touring very qualitatively. Peggy and Steve were very "savvy travellers" and wonderful people to tour with. Their company was most enjoyable and their sense of appreciation as to what Cape Town could offer them was absolutely amazing. Our parting ways at the airport was very hard for me however I somehow or other sense that they might be back to visit us one day. Here's hoping!!!
THANKS A TON STEVE AND PEGGY!!!
A BIG THANK YOU you from the people of Kayamandi for your wonderful support to them.
