This Week's MENU. Sushi takeaway and an Indian lunch

Right now, the USA is the news. Our lives date from the end of World War Two and its aftermath. In those 75 years, the USA has dominated world news in one way or another and, for all the wrong reasons, in the last four years when the man in charge has done his best to disrupt international relations, the environment and the democracy of his country. He has been no friend to us in Africa. The last three days have captured our attention more than almost any other American election and it appears that his reign is over as the last votes are counted. Maybe this bit of history’s page is turning.

Other than that dominating news, our life has been fairly quiet. We have enjoyed two Asian meals; also, incidentally, we have had the great treat of a family braai, the first since the early part of this year. We have reported on the Asian food part of our story and you can read about that here…

Saturday was a stunning day, so we decided that it was time to get out and enjoy Cape Town, but go somewhere different. We headed for Eden on the (Big) Bay. However, when we got there the South Easter was really pumping and it became "fresher" the longer we were there. It is the place to go for the most superb view of our city and the mountain, a walk along white sandy beaches and a paddle or a swim. But the downside is the almost constant wind. So it is much used by wind and kite surfers, although they can be swept out to sea. Read on…

Lunch at The Indian Oven, Hout Bay

The Indian Oven in Hout Bay impressed us so much the first time we went. The curries are the closest to those we have eaten and enjoyed in London, but if you like local there is one Durban curry on the menu as well as Bunny Chows. But Lock Down got in the way and we have been longing to go back. They have moved along the building to a better space. And there is plenty of parking outside. Read on…

Enjoy your weekend!
