Day 9, Cape Town-Couldn’t even see Table Montain today for all the dark clouds. Had some rain at 72 degrees. It was a relief to be able to wear jeans and a long sleeve shirt.
A very quiet day. We decided to take it easy and relax today. I spent most of the day nursing my cold. We decided since it’s Saturday that we would go out in the evening since everything would be hopping.
One of the restaurants that I had read about before leaving Portland was Fork. A tapas restaurant that has stellar reviews. We took our chances and walked down without a reservation. We were able to get a small table near the bar.
We had the Rocket lettuce, fig and Macadamia nut salad with a Pomegranate Vinaigrette.
We also ordered Ostrich, risotto and lamb plates. Game meat is the big thing here with Springbok, Ostrich, Water Buffalo, and Crocodile common on any menu. These animals are raised on farms like cattle in USA.
Walked up Long Street, which is party central most nights towards our apartment.
