Well, we’re here in Stellenbosch and having a great time. We arrived last Thursday, after a nice 12 hour flight, where the true crampedness of economy class long haul flights really shone through. I hate cattle class. It hurts.

We’ve spent a few days primarily muppeting about in Stellies, shopping and settling into the flat we’ve rented. The weather is nice (averaging about 20 degrees C) and sunny most of the day. Since it’s spring here it is still raining, but unlike in England it just rains some of the time (and really hard when it does!) but the rest of the day is bright and crisp and sunny.

It’s great fun so far … and steak is only about 3 GBP a kilo! My idea of heaven, definitely. It’s good to be home.
