    Default Cape Town - Face to Face & VMUG

    I am off to Cape Town for 4 weeks...just in case you missed any threads where I happened to mention it?

    I have agreed to do a weeks work remotely (SAN migration), spread out over the month, but feel the need to share the sun, surf and wine...

    Last year, Platypus and I met up for a Pizza and vino (hic!) and are going to do so again, since coincidentally, he is going to be there again. Even more weird, is that we both contract at the same end Client?

    There is also going to be a VMUG in Cape Town on 26th Feb, so will be there too!

    Anyone else care to join me?

    Any body needs a personal guide around South Africa, or have work in there that needs doing, give me a PM.

    Was born there and got out alive because of my smarts. I got passport, but foreigners dont need visias, you get free 30 day visa at passport control, and if you overstay its something daft per month that they don even bother collecting.

    Going to cape town myself 1st of April to 10th to relax and enjoy the 1 to 18ZAR conversion rate. 4 1kg Steaks and 12 drinks all round, total bill 12,35, stuffed.

    Ahhh.. I love going back there.

    Haven't been to Cape Town in ages - must be 4 months almost. 6 years ago we were getting ZAR10 to the , this trip it was over 20.

    If you're looking for somewhere to stay/eat and don't mind paying a bit extra, Babylonstoren is excellent. Very nice wine, amazing gardens, great food and the cottages have ginormous beds. Preferred it to the Steenberg where we also stayed on the most recent trip.
