Clouds this morning so we thought we’d do some meditating.
The program has officially come to an end. It culminated with our Demo Day this past Thursday, April 25th. The format was 10 startups pitching their business ideas to potential investors and media.
After hiking Lion’s Head this past weekend we decided that once a week isn’t enough. We woke up this morning at 5:30am and headed out in the dark. I was joined by Arnaud, Stefano and Rahul. What a great way to wake up and watch the sun rise.
Nice hike this morning with Arnaud, Stefano, Eliana (Stefano’s daughter), Nick and Jess. Great times, but we found a pocket on the mountain where you could float. Pretty wild stuff.
The night before Shannon headed off around the world, we headed to The Greenhouse for dinner. An amazing place with very creative dishes. I suggest it if you’re really in the mood for something different and special.

It was a sad day in Cape Town with Shannon’s departure. She’s off to Cairo as I write this. We’ve had an amazing couple of months and can’t believe it’s coming to an end. My sadness was briefly distracted with the sight of a beautiful rainbow during sunset. It’ll be a long two months, but… Continue reading Sunset in Cape Town
Mweb is trying to steal Arnaud and my thunder, but I’d say they did a nice job of it in their video they put out about 88mph.
I have to preface this post by saying that I hope you all get the chance to visit this place at some point in your life. Pretty amazing. Last Friday night we (Reidruffs) headed to Franschhoek for some wine tasting and a night at the La Residence. A colleague of mine, Andrea, had mentioned that… Continue reading Viva La Residence! (Franschhoek)
Some of you might remember from my post Don’t Park Here that I had some problems paying my parking fine last time around. I thought I’d give it another go this morning. I woke up early, biked down and found a nice short queue at the Office of Enquiries. I walked up, asked to have… Continue reading Parking Ticket Payment Success?
Sunday was my day to try to keep busy since Shannon wasn’t around. My genius solution was to kill myself with a long bike ride. Sure, it wasn’t that daunting, but I saved the hard part for last. My trek took me through the city center, past the V&A waterfront, around Mouille Point, along Sea… Continue reading Sunday Bike Day
I’ve talked about it before, but on March 30th we had some serious wind in Cape Town. It hit 70km/h gusts. The wind was so strong it was blowing water from the tops of the white peaks in open water. We traveled to Hout Bay this day and sand was being blown across the road.… Continue reading Cape Town Wind
I’m a big backlogged at the moment with my posts so I’ll try to fill you all in soon. So let’s start with Heaven. A couple of weeks ago Shan and I made the decision to get out of town for the weekend and headed to Hermanus. It’s a great beach town and I’ll post… Continue reading Lunch in Heaven
Had to post some pictures of this place in Camps Bay. Unreal. See more pics here: http://airows.com/first-crescent-house-lions-head-camps-bay-south-africa/
This was the scene in our apartment this morning. Do you remember me telling you about the prepaid electricity meters? Well, as Shannon was packing this morning at 5am to leave for her trip we found out just how important it is to watch it. With iPhone in hand we saw a flashing 0.0 with… Continue reading When the Lights Go Out In the City…errr…Apartment
I say first departure because she’ll be gone one week and then returning here for 4 days and then she’ll be leaving Cape Town (note my sad face as I write this). She’s off with her family on a week-long trip through Botswana and Zimbabwe. I’m very jealous and sorry to see them leave, but… Continue reading Shan’s First Departure
