Friends, Food and Farewells.

I love this picture. Wors looks like SUPER TOURIST and Sonja looks like shes singing a song like we are in a musical or something.

We have 2 friends coming over tonight that we toured with this year, Sonja and Wors (English speakers, pronounce the "w" like a "v", it's the Afrikaans word for sausage). Wors was our teams Coordinator this year, meaning that he was my right hand man and handled the logistics on tour, he did a fantastic job. He also played rhythm guitar in our band. And Sonja was a 1st year girl that grew into a wonderful woman during the year. Sonja also never new she could act, but became a wonderful actress on stage, from being silly and funny to serious and emotional she was brilliant.

So I guess this begins our time of farewells to our friends here. We have already said goodbye to many people that we will never see again, but there are others that we will enjoy the opportunity to spend a little more time with. Hopefully over food and wine we will end our chapter in South Africa that has brought so many different emotions and will forever remain in our memories. Its hard to believe its over.

FYI, tonight we will be having baked trout with sides of grilled asparagus and leeks, the Ray-Ray salad (spinach, strawberries, pomegranate seeds, avocado, onion and feta) and rolls. The Ray-Ray salad is fantastic, I recommend trying it out.

Have a great night, I plan on it. Cheers.
