As we passed the Mount Nelson Hotel on Orange Street, my pulse started to race and I battled to control the excitment of returning to Kloof Street after an absence of 71 days, 2 hours and a few odd seconds. Home is where the heart is... But what is this? Naked looks closed, and (horror of all horrors) someone is building a facebrick house. [Fade out. End scene]
Keen to get back into 'The Routine', Braamie and I rushed to Origin on Saturday morning. Sleeping late can result in loosing out on the salmon bagels! There was a new reason to visit Origin: tea. My new tea requires equal volumes of Darjeeling Puttabong and Keemun Luxus Congou, and just a pinch of Lapsan Souchong. Infuse for 6 minutes and taste heaven. Luckily, Origin Tea Merchants provided ample volumes of all three.
It is good to be back. So, what is new with you?
