I was invited by Errieda du Toit, an experienced hand in the kitchen and new twitter friend to be part of a feature on her, by the Afrikaans television programme Pasella.

Some images of the dinner the night before and a little fun.

Adeus Cape Town and dear, dear friends. Tomorrow morning, after around 24 hours of travelling, via le chic ooh la la city Paris, we will (hopefully) arrive in Lisbon, our new base for the next few months.

In the morning, grumpy and in need of a shower and a good breakfast, we look forward to opening up that phrase book and calling out a confident "Bom dia!"
