I met up with this wonderful threesome at Mediterranean Villa and we transferred their baggage over to Dale Cottage Holiday apartments as they were changing their place of accommodation on the day. Thereafter we did a little bit of shopping at Woolworths in Sea Point. We then set out on our cultural history tour through the winelands.

We stopped in at Plattekloof where we took in a magnificent view of the whole of the Cape Town region

Taking Theresa, Anne and Joan through a journey of South Africa's history as well as through Kayamandi showing the cultural life of South Africans was an enormous pleasure. All three of these ladies were keen to learn all about our South African ways and I think that on the day they certainly came to find out more about how we as South Africans live. For me it was a great experience to take them on this journey and I enjoyed every minute of our being together. I can but only hope that they enjoyed the experience equivalently.

THANKS FOR  A GREAT DAY

THERESA, ANNE AND JOAN
