Lunching at Groot Constantia. Lovely wine estate, though we agreed that this particular wine did not have enough personality 😉

Haiku. This was my third time and I cannot appraise this restaurant enough. Must try when in Cape Town.

Oranjezicht market in Granger Bay. Mecca for every Saturday morning for me. Fresh & local food lover’s paradise.

World Sevens Rugby Cup at Cape Town stadium

Seasons are the opposite to Europe’s here and thus the South African Summer falls from November to February. Our MBA graduation took place few weeks ago, which officially meant the start of vacation. Though my biggest project here is only starting – few papers to hand in and thesis to finish – I’ve taken some time to enjoy the Summer time with my dear visitor.

After the graduation night out and Sunday in Kirstenbosch, I had couple of days time to start my papers and get back on track with sports. It was then time for 10 days of meditating, which was far away from vacation though. 🙂 Then it was time to pick up wifey from airport. We’ve had a lot of fun as always and she has seen a lot of Cape Town and Stellies during the past weeks, so I consider myself a decent host. I also got to check something out of my bucket list when Rupert invited us to Sevens Rugby World Cup on Saturday. Though Sevens is not traditional rugby,  I’m now a bit more sophisticated in this regard. We’ve also developed an addiction to Thai Panang beef coconut curry at Haiku, developed our business ideas further and got some new ones, done best barre workouts ever, surfed in varying conditions, witnessed breathtaking African sunsets… And beyond.

Today is Satu’s last day. I’m soon waking her up, doing a quick yoga, introducing my favourite breakfast spot in Cape Town to her, and then taking a history lesson at District Six Museum. Then it’s time to take her to the airport and for me to drive to Stellies to pack my last stuff and officially move out. The next five days I’m dedicating for WORK. I’ve missed working. And working out of course. Want to get back on track with meditating, yoga and barre.
