Lucien and Joelene Pierce's Wedding, Saturday, 30 May 2009

Friday, 22 May 2009 - AT & Sherry arive in Cape Town after a week in the Kruager Game Reserve. I am glad that hey were able to gave a great game experienceand capture some really good shots.

Cape Town - though out of season - gives them an opportunity to experience the fun party scene of South Africa. We started with dinner at Gordon Ramsay's restaurant and cocktails in the One & OnlyHotel, Sol Kerzner's return to hotels in South Africa - where he started.

We had a great time out with my friend Roxanne Cloete. That wasn't the end of it though. We followed this up wit a drive to Lanzerac the next day where we had lunch and were able to experience some ignature wines, and ended the day with afternoon dessert in Franschhoek. It made me realise how much I missed my life in the tourism sector and how easily I could fall back into this lifestyle.

Monday, 1 June 2009 - Me with AT & Sherry Howe at Zimbali Lodget during their honeymoon in South Africa.

AT and his family have been my dear friends since we meet in BostonMassachusetts in the summer of 1990.

AT and Sherry were married in October 2008 and decided that they would spend their honeymoon - albeit a few months later - in South Africa. They had a great time in the Kruger followed by Cape Town where I joined then and we had a chance to hang out at the One & Only; and finally ended with a stop-over in Durban.

It also gave us a chance to have dinner together with the family at Vintage, which until recently was my favourite Indian restaurant in Durban.

Confederations Cup 2009 - this is thebanner I created to support the public viewing area activation that the Province of KwaZulu-Natal hosted in four locations across the provice - Ezakheni, Esikhawini, Pieternmaritzburg and Port Shepstone.

I attended three of these before visting sites in Gauteng. The PVA on Atteridgeville outswide Pretoria was freezing cold - and unsurprisingly poorly attended.

I also attended the South Africa vs. Brazil semi-final at Ellis Park. I almost frozemy nose off! The cold was unbelievable but he fans were there in full force for a truly incredible soccer spectacle - a beautiful game indeed!
Saturday,4 July 2009 - Sister, Leanne Anderson and I hanging out with the Keshwars at the Durban July. My mother stayed with their Uncle Percy when she first arrived in Durban, the big city about 50 years ago, before any of us were born.

We have know each other all our lives and over the years have grown to be friends.

A great family indeed!
