^^ Two different kinds of pierogies.  Sauerkraut and squash, equally as good.

Its been raining  here for the last couple of days, and I’m loving these cooler days.  Its finally starting to feel a tad like winter, I would call it late fall kind of weather, but this will have to do.  So bring on the hot cocoa and cuddly days, with wonderful hikes that don’t require me to die of heat stroke!

First couple of days in Cape Town, South Africa

Its H-O-T, hot, hot, hot here! We’ve been melting from the heat here.  We came in here thinking, oh, its fall, it wont possibly be that hot here.  Boy, were we wrong! on the plus side my hair looks amazing.  The abundance of vitamin D seem to be making my hair shinier by the day! Carl, on the other hand is suffering from a light sunburn.

It’s been fun to walk around a different city, we been drinking water like fiends trying to hydrate as much as possible, thanks to the insane heat, but the skies are bluer than blue and the water looks like a blue carpet with diamonds strewn across it.  Can’t be mad at that!

^^ The waterfront is filled with beauty.

^^ I don’t know what’s the deal with this ice cream cone, but I like it.

^^ Carl’s beard is growing at record speed again.  The lack of vitamin D in Dublin, made his beard stop growing.  We googled it, its a real thing!

^^ Green juice break.
