Cape Town Local Entertainment

I was truly amazed at the marina we were in with the mall (a really big one) and the entertainment going on all the time and everywhere you wandered. I was especially enthralled with the marimba groups and how they were made and if the music was written in only one key since they had a different keyboard than ours.

Note, no upper bars like our marimbas.

The food at the crew party was very different and supposedly all native.  It was good and if it was native we never knew it.  The only weird one was the sheep’s head and yes it definitely was a sheep’s head and several enjoyed it.  YUK… I  couldn’t even bring myself to take a picture!  Some other food examples:

Looks good

Somehow this program wants me to use this space so will say goodbye for now !  More later as it is raining here in Sydney so can’t work on boat and will take some time to catch up!  Did get in 12 hours of sleep time last night and feel great!
