March 16, 2013 (Stellenbosch, RSA) After the OSSA meeting, we took some time to tour the country side around Cape Town and visit the town of Stellenbosch. It is an old Dutch town (founded in 1679) where the University of Stellenbosch is located in the foothills of the very beautiful mountain foothills with vineyards and olive groves lining the highways. We stopped for a meal at one of the larger wineries and had a lovely time. We were joined by Tim and Viv - a very entertaining couple from Sunderland, UK. Tim is a retinal specialist that has spent some time with Dr. Pons in Swaziland and is actively helping him improve medical retina services there. He and his wife are hilariously funny and a real blast to have on a day trip.

Off to Johannesburg and on to Manzini, Swaziland early tomorrow morning!
