My last day in Cape Town, I went with friends wine tasting in and around Stellenbosch. The day was a scorcher and Marieke and I both were badly sunburned from our weekend escapades. We jumped from shady spot to shady spot. I went so far as to wrap my sarong around my legs, they were burning every time the sun touched them.
The wine was delicious. The brandy tasting not so much, I put it to my lips but it tasted like gasoline! Though the brandy cocktail Marieke had was scrumptious. The recipe is below.
It was bittersweet. Cape Town is a horrible place to have to leave. I spent every morning I could on the beach, and every evening too. But all good things must come to an end. From Cape Town, I flew to Johannesburg for a short layover before continuing on a flight back to the Northern hemisphere.
