It has been a while since I last posted but I have a very good excuse, I have just spent two weeks in heaven. Well, pretty close to it actually, I was in Cape Town. Cape Town must surely be one of the most beautiful places on earth. It has the sea, the mountains, the wine lands, birds, animals, whales, superb restaurants and the friendliest people. I was there helping set up my daughter who has just started an internship at the new Zeitz MOCAA (Museum of Contemporary Art Africa) being built in Cape Town. She moved from Los Angeles to Sea Point. It is weird how life works. Who would ever have thought that my daughter would end up living in the place I grew up in?
