Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.


Date: 10th March 2009



If only they could sort out the politics, poverty, crime and give jobs to all, Capetown would be a veritable Paradise.

Today a friend took me on a train from Kennilworth to Muizenberg - didn't ever think I'd travel on public transport here - their trains are on a par with our older underground trains.

Getting out at Muizenberg we were totally assailed by the salinity - the sea had a sort of light early morning mist on the waves - it was almost surreal.  Our walk alongside the Railway was partly on paths, partly on rocks and part on the beach.  We dunked ourselves in the sea at Danger Beach - it had a pretty rough surf but the water was surprisingly acceptable temperature-wise.  It would have to be for me to venture in.  Apparently there's quite a rip tide there and over a hundred years ago two sisters drowned there - hence it's name. But it certainly didn't look anything other than deliciously inviting this morning.  We sat on the rocks to dry and continued our walk to Kalk Bay where we had a Parisian breakfast of coffee and croissants.  It was such bliss I almost felt as though I'd died and gone to Paradise.
