My first week in Cape Town had been full with things, that didn’t happen ;o).
Monday should have been my first working day – unfortunately my boss had been sick – so I signed for a month contract at the gym, to be able to run again
Tuesday – my boss still sick – I enjoyed the swimming line in the gym and the bike
Wednesday – this had been a great day – I met my boss and we went to the customer (Cape Town Government) for which I should work the first month – very nice and friendly people – I’m sure, that will be a great time and I will learn a lot, as they use nearly each module of SAP and are a big team
Thursday – Women Day – international holiday – I booked yesterday 2 tours, to be busy this day – the people from the township tour didn’t pick me up, after one hour waiting I have been nearly frozen – went to the Waterfront to the Aquarium until my second tour, the Robben Island Tour should start – Cancelled ;o) – the sea is to ruff – ok, I went back to Long Street into my loved internet cafe and made later a stop at Lola’s, a Restaurant/Cafe at the corner – they saved my day – nice music, nice people and good food
Friday – this morning I did the township tour, I went this time to the tourist office, to meet them there, just to be sure ;o) – the guide had been very aggressive, tour was ok, but not as expected – in the afternoon I just went to the gym again and picked up the USB Stick with some information, that I can study at the weekend for my job on Monday
Saturday – I’m getting very bored and feeling extremely lonely – I decide to go on my own to the Table Mountain, hopefully I find some people, who I can join – unfortunately the weather had been very bad, just meet some people coming down, who all said, that it’s dangerous to go on my own – so I went back, and asked them, if I can join them the next time – www.clag.org.za is the key … – so I went to the waterfront to the cinema – Reign on me – a very good movie, but sad, which hadn’t been good for my mood – finally Elro, my flatmate took me with him for the evening – that was good, saved my day! – we went to a good Thai Restaurant and later into some Clubs
Sunday – today is my Robben Island Tour – I’m going to Waterfront, to go to the Aquarium upfront – my blood pressure don’t likes me to move any further, I feel dizzy, go to a Mexican Restaurant, eat and have 2 cokes, but it does not help – makes it even worse – now my stomach is also striking – I call Elro to pick me up – the rest of the day I’m just sleeping – it’s not getting better – I have enough and just like to go home, I really need to go home and see a doctor and be not alone
