WhaleTalesTourism, Food, and Wine news headlines

*   The Reserve Bank Monetary Policy Committee has kept the repo rate unchanged at 5,75%, the new Governor Lesetja Kganyago has announced. The rate did not change due to the reducing inflation rate, the lower international oil prices being an inflation benefit, and the weak economy.

*   The Vancouver Sun writes about ‘Sensational South Africa‘, highlighting its ‘Big Five must-see list’.  It includes Cape Town (‘the country’s prettiest city‘, Bo-Kaap, the City Bowl market – certainly not the best Cape Town has to offer – Table Mountain and its ‘tram ride‘, the Mount Nelson Hotel, and Robben Island), the Winelands (Franschhoek and its Wine Tram), Himeville and the Drakensberg,  Durban, and Safaris.

*  The City of Cape Town has announced its extensive plans for the safety of the city and its visitors over the Festive Season.  The MyCiTi Buses will also run until later at night, especially between the Civic Centre and the Waterfront.

*   Four restaurant owners, George Jardine of Jordan, Pete Goffe-Wood of Kitchen Cowboys, Liam Tomlin of Chef’s Warehouse,  and Michael Broughton of Terroir, will be launching their new books at Jordan Bakery on 15 December.  Snacks and wine will be served.  There is no cost to attend. (received via e-mail from Jordan Bakery)

*   Robertson Winery has launched a new Lightly Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc, being neither light nor a sparkling wine, the media release states. (received via media release from Hazell PR and Wine Consultants)
