SA this week
By christophersaul on Feb 04, 2009
Nice trip to SA this week, beginning last Thursday with a friend's wedding just outside of Jo'burg - a rare occasion when work travel fits with something personal.
If you're looking for somewhere to stay outside of town, I recommend Misty Hills, where we were. Odd fluorescent lighting aside, it's a great place - lots of individual chalets amidst lots of greenery. Steer clear of their restaurant though - everyone recommended we visit The Carnivore, as it's called, but it must have gone down recently. They couldn't get our booking right, the ambience was terrible with uncomfy chairs and bright lights adjusted to shine right in your eyes. More importantly, the food was awful. Instead of the buffet of juicy game we were looking forward to, we had to put up with a parade or cold, dry meat, drab salads and desserts that were clearly shop bought. Yuck.
