Today was the Two Oceans Marathon, a 56m race around the Cape Peninsula. It has been running since 1970 (when there were only 26 entries), and now there are just under 11000 entries.
Now, while I am crazy enough to race around Cape Town on my bicycle, I am not crazy enough to run the marathon*. However, I was more than happy to take some photos.
Happy to see you too
Keeping the stride
I have been working in Durbanville for a couple of months now, and I am still trying to figure out the good spots to go for lunch. Today I found one more great spot, courtesy two friends who live in the area that treated me for sushi for lunch.
We went to a little spot called Maz Sushi. My hosts have been there several times, the restaurant seem to attract many regulars, which is always a good sign.
The restaurant is a very simple and functional spot (perspex table covers and paper napkins). However they have a good (and cheap) wine selection, including some really great wines. We shared a bottle of Durbanville Hills Sauvignon Blanc, which cost about R90.
The sushi is great and really good value for money. Everything is made to order, and there is a huge selection. They also have a variety of platters, from a simple 4 item platter, through to huge platters (50+ pieces). I enjoy the platters because you always get a good selection. Oh, and they also cater for functions and take out :-)
Did I enjoy the food? Absolutely.
Will I be back? Without a doubt! Great food, well worth the visit.

An amusing way to paint your aeroplane. Zoom in on the pic to find the finer details of commercial flight. Well done to Kulula for an innovative idea.
Chapman’s Peak during the Argus Cycle Tour. This most be one of the most beautiful roads to cycle on. If you look carefully, you can see the road covered in little ants, which are in fact the cyclists.
