Needless to say, the afternoon was a lot of fun. We laughed, we reminisced, we played games, and we compared foot tan lines. You know, a normal afternoon. It stayed that way into the evening, where the dancing began and the party started. It was a great way to spend one of our last nights with our new friends. Nothing like a few drinks to bring a group together =)
From the desert of Namibia, we crossed into the fertile valleys of South Africa. We headed into the Cederberg region to consume some of what South Africa is so well known for; its wines. Now I must admit, by this point in the journey we had already consumed our fair share of Springbok shots, Kili, Windhock, Serengeti, Tusker and Castle beers, but now was the time for classy drinking (or so we thought). We arrived at our next campsite early in the afternoon. It was at the Highland Estates. (Yes, it was at the winery itself, how convenient =)) We did a wine tasting at 2 to try some of the wines that were made in the region, including pinotage which is a special wine only made in South Africa. At the tasting the owner went over how to see, smell and taste the wine (Nadja and David, thanks for the advanced lessons at the Peller Estates, I felt like an expert). We then proceeded to sample many bottles and types. After the tasting we all headed to the pool each with a bottle in hand.
