It's not the bond franchise
Martini on the rocks; legendary and distinct,
It made the cut by finesse and great punch
An aquired taste; experience will teach you, is an adventure at its best
When life forces run amok; stirring the pot of adversary in stride
Maintain a grip on the rails of misfortune; exude a posterior fortified with machavelian contours
Resist the temptation to howl in distress,
posturing an opportunity for heresay ramblings
It will only be a minute when the dark clouds passover
Show fortitude, let the credits run its course
the protagonist headlines with a major exit
Let this be one story to be told ot the greats

Tonight I had the privilege of listening to Professor Jonathan Jansen talk candidly on his view on politics, racism, education and life in South Africa.
I loved his intolerance to bullsh*t, and his HOPE in humanity to ask for forgiveness, to laugh at ourselves, to cheer on the underdog and to continue to fight for one another and do what you can (even when we doubt). Be an architect of people- build where you can. Keep shining your light. —
He shared the impact of one cleaner in a convenience shop- who recognized him- and told him that this country needed him- so that her son could get a good education.
I loved his intolerance to bullying, racism, intimidation and destruction - esp to buildings of education ... "Do not burn on Friday what you will need on Monday" —
He also spoke about the dire need to focus on preprimary education for all- as without that, there isn't a strong enough foundation to build on! —
The money raised from this evenings event will go towards building classrooms and buying furniture for Iphutheng Primary school in Alexandra Township. Well done #thirdthursdays .

Our drive to the Southern most tip of Africa was beyond stunning! The skies opened up for us and gave us glorious weather as we walked up to the lighthouse at the Cape of Good Hope. I felt like we were driving along the coastal 1 highway in California, but with penguins and baboons along the way reminding us that we are actually in Africa. Here is the view of the cliffside trail and private beach you can hike down to.

A África do Sul nem sempre é um destino que as pessoas tem no topo da lista de lugares para conhecer logo, mas alinhando o perfil e os desejos é possível fazer a viagem dos sonhos! É um país emocionante! Esse casal querido passou a lua de mel lá e amou! 🦁🍷
There’s postcard kind scenery at every turn 👌🏼
