South Africa Adventure Day 4
Today started off with a drive to Stellenbosch, which is South Africaâ€™s second oldest city and also known as the wine capital. It is a very cute town with lots of Cape Dutch cottages.
First we had a hands on cooking class and made Koeksister (pronounced cook-sister), and that was also our word of the day. A Koeksister is a pastry sort of like a doughnut dipped in syrup. We then got to work off our Koeksister with a bike ride to our lunch location. Our lunch was at Moyo in the Spier Wine Estate, a fun place where we almost felt like we were eating in a treehouse. After lunch there were 2 choices â€“ wine tasting or an eagle encounter. I am not big on wine so I chose the eagles and I am glad I did. It was a nice presentation where were we had a couple owls land on us and got up close with a couple vultures.
Compared to yesterday today was relaxing, of course that is also partly because we will be saying good bye to Cape Town bright and early tomorrow morning. We are headed to the airport at 5:30 am to make our way to Knysna (pronounced nize-nuh). Adventures by Disney is the only tour that flies to Knysna, others go by motorcoach and waste a whole day driving.
