Two Days in Cape Town

Cape Town, South Africa has long been lauded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.  The waterfront, Table Mountain, and the beautiful blue Atlantic Ocean create a stunning setting for a cosmopolitan city.  Sir Frances Drake remarked “this cape is the most stately thing and fairest cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth” in 1580. This port city sits at the bottom of South Africa.  On the waterfront, one can watch the hub of activity with gazillions of boats and even dream of which yacht or sailboat is really yours… Or visit Robben...

The recipe came from a cooking class The Man and I took at the Ritz Carlton Cancun where we sat around a chef’s table sipping margaritas, drinking Mexican wine, and creating fabulous cuisine creations.  I was a bit surprise at...

Sabi Sabi South African Safari

I spent two glorious nights at the Sabi Sabi Earth Lodge for safari.  It was my first safari and I could not have asked for a better experience!!!!  The small, thirteen suite property is situated right in the bush with animal friends visiting us throughout our stay.  It was common to spy water bucks grazing in the yard just off the terrace, have elephants visit us at dinner….hanging out at the edge of the mist, and have warthogs run across the path in front of us (to which I called out “Hi Pumba! and said warthog stopped, turned, grunted,...
