S L O W D O W N – Hermanus, South Africa

Well I am healed! Thanks to 4 days of heavy rest I was able to go out on Saturday night, my last night in Stellenbosch. I ended up out and about meeting locals and uni students. The band was not bad and I had a good time trying to figure out my way home at the end of the night.

I was just about asleep when bang bang bang, my “neighbours” came home from the bar and but of course, do not have their key. Apparently the one guy with the key decided to bugger off to Cape Town ?!? What? So three South African guys were taking turns crawling in and out of my window, shimmying along the second story ledge ( I am sure not an easy feat when you have had THAT much to drink) then brought back chips and dip for an impromptu party in the Peace room. It was really good to hear about life growing up in South Africa and their diving for diamonds stories. Very amusing but yet another night goes by without sleep. See, even when I try to come home from the party, the party comes to me! It was pretty surreal when I took a step back and well, I just shake my head now at the funny bits because they are all here to make this trip that much more of an experience.

I have made my way to the small seaside town of Hermanus and really S L O W E D down as soon as the ocean air hit my lungs. It was rainy yesterday for the first time really since I got into Africa so it was a good one for relaxing by the fire, watching movies and visiting with the locals. Today is another sunny one so I must take my leave…there are meant to be whales in the bay so I am on a mission to spot them.
