We drove to Stellenbosch and did a car tour of the town before travelling back to Cape Town where we unfortunately had to bid each other farewell at An African Place.
This was a wonderful tour for me to do. I had so much in common with all on board that the tour simply was bound to be a success. We visited many places and enjoyed all of these experiences immensely. Much was learnt and much was shared. Overall the tour just was a fabulous experience for me and I hope for all on board.
A BIG THANKS goes to Howie and Leslie Needleman for recommending that this great foursome travel with me.
THANKS A TON FOR BEING SUCH WONDERFUL COMPANIONS ON TOUR

Thank you for taking such good care of us! We thoroughly enjoyed our touring together and we especially want to thank you for taking Amos to the chiropractor.........and arranging the phone! It is such a big help to be with a local in order to take care of things! A special thanks for taking us to the township. We admire your long term commitment and understand the frustrations about the promises from friends. Feel good about what you do though.........it means the world to those you are assisting and you should smile when you look at yourself in the mirror! You are making a difference in the world!
Today, we visited Tanya's store (very beautiful) and then walked to the just opened mall that was nearby (some beautiful galleries). The weather was so nice and clear and not windy, so we were looking forward to our Robben Island tour. We got to the clock tower in plenty of time and guess what!!!!...........the tour was cancelled due to weather! All was not lost ----- we had a great lunch at Willoughby's and the day was glorious! Later, we met our Israeli friends for coffee. We are off to Zulu Nyala in the morning!
Amos received your package today ---- thank you. It seems to be helping him and we very much appreciate your putting yourself out for us.
We will stay in touch and hope you will do the same!
