S. Africa Part 1: Cape Town
We arrived in Cape Town on a glorious Saturday to kickoff our delayed honeymoon. We made our way down to the waterfront to check out the sites and sounds.
Table Mountain in the background
Matt's old stomping ground from the World Cup
Little seal hanging out, giving me a wave
Loved these fat women stone figures
To give you an idea of how far from home we were
Local band jamming out. Wish I had bought one of their CD's-they were great
This is where we headed for lunch and a pint of Castle Ale
These seagulls weren't shy when it came to stealing some leftover fries
Gotta love the name of this boat
The stadium that was built for the Cup in the background
With some time to kill, Matt got a hot shave...also his only shave of the trip
Not sure what this guy was all about, but he was made completely of Coke crates
Our taxi back was hilarious. All red, including a fuzzy red interior. I named it the Elmo taxi
Dinner that night was at Mama Africa
Matt ordered the game grill platter: crocodile, ostrich, springbok, kudu & venison sausage. It was my first time trying springbok. Tasty stuff. Pass on the crocodile, too chewy.
A night cap downtown on Long Street at the Waiting Room
Matt insisted that I take the pic of the stairwell that lead to the bar (it was safe Mom, promise)
Sunday was our day to climb Table Mountain but the weather didn't cooperate so we hit up some of the local street markets
These guy were a breeze to negotiate with compared to the haggling I have to do in China. I am sure I still over paid.
I wanted to buy one of these guys but decided they looked better in groups and would be out of place in our flat. Plus I am still holding out for my cigar store Indian statue
Back to the waterfront for dinner and beer tasting to end the night at Mitchell's Ale House
Next stop on the trip: Wine Country
