You know those experiences that just turn you off something?

Like the time I ate so many tomato flavored chips as a kid and it made me very sick. As a result I could not look at tomato chips for a good number of years.

Or like a friend of mine who can’t eat anything with sweet chilly sauce, cause she got food poisoning from something that just happened to contain the stuff. You have had one of those experiences right?

Winter in Cape Town

Um No!
This is the drive in to work yesterday:


And this is the same drive today:


(I was a little earlier this morning so the sun had not yet kissed the top of the mountain)

Weekends in Cape Town are almost always guaranteed to be wet and miserable :)

Cape Town in the morning

Man the traffic was bad this morning. I am usually quite lucky in that it takes me about 15 minuets to drive to work in the morning. This morning the trip took 50 minuets. Wa….?

And while it usually is bumper to bumper on the N2 in the morning, this morning the N2 was a parking lot. A long, thin, 3 spaces wide parking lot.
