That’s real beer ….

… brewed “Method Classique” and served by people who really know to tell beer-(hi-)stories for hours with a never fading enthusiasm. The brewery is ‘Honingklip’ somewhere hidden in the country-side near Kleinmond in the Western Cape, South Africa. A must for every true beer lover travelling to South Africa. And the food, prepared and created in a ‘one-chef-only-kitchen’, is an excellent companion.

‘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’ … 😉 )

Candid Portraits 5: Coffee Enjoyment

The Coffee Corner in Morton Street, Stanford, South Africa is the place where villagers gather, play games, do their wireless computer work, talk and talk, pamper their babies, relax, read the newspaper, pick up a fast snack, dream, cry, laugh and above all enjoy a delicious cup of coffee and affordable food.
Although the people saw me one morning walking around with camera-equipment virtually all pictures are made the ‘candid camera way’.
 

Time for a cup of Coffee (and some delicious food):
