this week not too many pictures, as I was unable to walk around that much. Being a super hot ninja, I ran down Lion's Head with an approximate average speed of 11 km/h + bragging extra of 5km/h and jumped - right heel first - on one fuzzing vicious rock. Therefore, I had to take it a little easy. Nevertheless, luck stuck to me as I burned my nose with a cigarette, crashed with a bike rider and met my friend the great white shark. Especially the last encounter was very exciting, but freaking scary, too. The great hunter sort of said hello while I was surfing out at Nordhoek the other morning. I was a little confused by such a big dolphin until me and a surferess saw him again - about 25 meter off our yummy legs. It took me about 20 minutes watching the other guys still surfing some of the most awesome waves ever until I got back into the roaring sea.
On Christmas, I was invited to some really nice peolpe, who own a the winw estate "Meerlust" in Stellenbosch. It was an extremly pleasant night, which was followed by an extremly unpleasant hangover.
So poeple keep it up and wish me luck for me application for the Underwater Scholarship Society Scholarship 2011. The guys at the office have hopefully received my stuff by now!
Keep it danger,

The Entourage moved on to South Africa.
I arrived in Capetown about a week ago and I finally found my spot in this amazing mountain-ocean-downtown-uptown-whatever city. The first week I had to fight the army of SAA baggage loss department though. I was a dirty and merciless battle. Me and the Entourage were constantly telephone terroring, while the evil force of SAA stroke back with all the might of ingnoring and redirecting. Finally, the status quo of mutual distaste was broken in an almost romantic moment of finding my stuff in Johannesburg. Besides that I already got the chance to meet some stunning - oftentimes interesting - people along the way. There is e.g. "Greek the fasihon geek", who made me feel very welcomed quite quickly. While doing so he pulls of amazing landscape photographiy , which you can admire on his website: http://www.nikolasmichael.com . Furthermore, I inspected the endless possibilities of how you can spent your time in this town an I was stunned by all the variety of chioces. You like nightlife? Lets go! Super fierce montain running? Lets go! Oldtimer racing? Lets got! The list doesnt stop... My only person dislike is the flatspell, which is ruining the surf at the moment. I was out already, but the only thing I got were frozen feet and a petrol bill for 100 Rand. Hopefully, that is going to change soon, but as always I am quite optimistic.
The pictures I took are all more or less from my walk up Lions Head and I hope you enjoy!
