Tuesday 23 November 2021, Day 54 of Level 1. 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a day with a difference, with a 4h30 start, cramming in a day full of work until I left home at 10h00; for proudly wearing my Tourist Badge for the first time; for my first Tourist Guiding in 19 months, fetching German couple Cornelia and Wolfgang from the V&A Hotel and walking towards the city centre through a very quiet Silo District, they having a glass of bubbly at Utopia, showing them the wonderful 15th floor view and giving them an overview of ‘my Cape Town’ from the map of our city; for a walk through Bo Kaap, still very quiet, only seeing one tourist group at Atlas Continue reading →

#Grateful for an upside-down day, but nevertheless successful, the first day that I felt in control of my work this week, not having got to everything every day due to Loadshedding; for letting Loadshedding guide me, when it started at 6h00 this morning, so I went for a 7h00 walk, nice and fresh; for completing the November newsletter for newkings boutique hotel this morning; for posting on Social Media for each client; for organizing the Camps Bay Community CAMPS BAY CLEAN and a lunch tomorrow; for buying tickets for the Evita Bezuidenhout Lockdown show next week; for Earl Continue reading →
