‘Die Uitvreter’ ….

…. is Afrikaans for a person who parasites. If you ask people from Cape Town to join a festivity they will most probably say yes (never ‘no’ and sometimes ‘maybe’) but they won’t show up except when you clearly say that there is food served. Believe me; they’ll all be there and at least one hour before the start of whatever festivity. But that’s a ‘cultural thing’ 😀

Anyway last Sunday we had a different kind of ‘uitvreter’ in the restaurant in Hermanus. This one really liked our prawns …. (had to work one the last picture because the bird was moving ‘flashing fast’ … 😉 )

The Kalanchoe Thyrsifolia originates from Madagascar and regarded as a weed on this island. But in South Africa it’s the most popular succulent plant. South Africans even have their own name for it: ‘Rooi Plakkie’ (Little Red Slice).
