We arrived in Cape Town and without further ado fell in love with the local Thai restaurant - I am ashamed to admit that we ate there 3 nights out of a possible 7!! The staff must have thought we were SO lacking in imagination - but our feeling was "why mess with a good thing?" And believe me, it was all good!
Saturday morning we woke up refreshed from our looong journey and raring to go. First on our agenda was a look around the Cape Argus Cycle Tour expo - one of the drawbacks of having a cycling nut in the family..... While Grant took in all the stands on offer, Paula and I managed to entertain ourselves by watching a whole bunch of men having their legs waxed. I kid you not! There they were, a row of otherwise normal-looking men, having their legs waxed without flinching (I'm sure they were only being so very brave because there were a whole bunch of people watching them) We also found a cunning little device which enables woman to wee standing up. So I suppose you could say that our trip to the expo was not entirely a waste of time ;-) (Can anyone enlighten me as to why a woman would want to wee standing up?)
Then we were off to Hout Bay. It is tradition that when in the vicinity, we always have a meal of fish and chips at Mariner’s Wharf in Hout Bay, so that's exactly what we did. Hout Bay is lovely and well worth a visit.
