Don’t forget that today is International Absinthe Day, so remember to have some when you get home this evening (like you really need an excuse that is).
This local absinthe (which in my opinion is much better than the Czech Absinthe) is made by my friend Roger Jorgensen
Pouring Absinthe in the traditional manner.
In Prague you can get it on every street corner, and if the drink is not to your taste, try the ice cream or a cocktail. But be warned, it is dangerous stuff.
I don’t tyink that you can ever tire of the view from or the view of Table Mountain. This shot was taken from the upper cable station view a view of Lion’s Head in the foreground, with Robben Island in the distance. If you are wondering what the red packs and ropes on the right are for, the answer is abseiling equipment. Yes if you are brave you can pay to slide down the side of the mountain on climbing ropes. While I am sure it fun I think I will stick to shooting the pictures.
We had dinner the other day at one of the restaurants at the V&A Waterfront and Lois ordered one of the vegetarian meals. This divine looking vegetarian platter arrived a few minutes later (certainly much better than the baked potato, spinach and butternut vege platters of the 80′s). But the only problem is that it is not what she ordered. But that didn’t stop me from taking a quick photo of it before it was whisked away to be rapidly replaced with the correct meal.
