every time i visit cape town i make sure at least once i visit moyo. it is really a happy place. the ambient is awesome: it is set in tents around the most awesome trees. food i so and so: nothing amazing, an all you can eat buffet, it is good but nothing extraordinary. what i enjoy most about moyo is the atmosphere and super pleasant staff. buffet is good sometimes as it gives me a chance to try all kinds of stuff and not really worry if my order was good or not.
also its a rare opportunity to try things like springbok steak with chocolate sauce and edam cheese or grilled calamari with custard sauce – both i would recommend for trying but not for eating. the seafood and sweets combination is really sickening.
martina and i were with my parents, stuart barnes and dan hugo and his girlfriend ruth cherry bird. stuart barnes (stuartbarnes.net) is an internet developer who escaped london to live on a beach in sedgefield, near knysna. dan hugo (dghugo.com) is a professional xterra triathlete whom i sponsor with some web tips and ruth is his girlfriend whom i also help with web tips for her charity project songo (songo.info).
it is important for me to classify stuart as someone who escaped urban busy money grabbing life to spend time on a beach kitesurfing because his life choices are quite similar to mine: i also escaped a career to travel around the world, train for ironman and do as little work as possible.
i still do enjoy my work but it is hardly something i do 15 hours a day in a sunless office so i could pay outrageous rent and meaningless branded clothes.
anyway, we had a great time in moyo. check out moyo.co.za.
