Oubruncher; literally 'where to brunch' a website dedidated solely to great places to have brunch in Paris, we made our way to the 8th. Le Quai was not our first choice but after numerous attempts to make reservations at our initial choices - and being told that there was nothing available before 2pm (for brunch!) we decided to take the 2pm.

Champagne is reasonable compared to what we are used to paying (both in SA and Ghana) and a bagful of groceries this morning did set us back some euros; but I can gladly live on bread and cheese for the moment.
Wanderlust! has a whole new location, and from scouring the numerous blogs on Paris, restaurants reviews may not be the main focus going forward. From Paris by Mouth to The Paris Kitchen, the restaurant scene is pretty much covered. What will be the focus? Well, for now it's definitely back to the drawing board. In the meantime, will be looking for places offering french lessons in order to bring the french up to speed; must be able to order those delightful french dishes like a pro by year end. It's always about the food!

Elephant Sanctuary at Hartbeespoort Dam. One takes for granted how truly magnificent these creatures are, but as majestic as they are, there's something rather pitiful when we see them in enclosures. The Hartbeespoort sanctuary is one of three Elephant Sanctuaries countrywide, with one in Hazyview (Near the Kruger National Park) and another in Plettenberg Bay (along the Garden Route).
