We leave PE (Khan's - corner Cape and William Moffett) 07h45 (no space for late comers) to be there 08h00 when the gate opens (R20 pp). There is a nice picnic area there and perhaps we can have out snack there. The garden walk will be there for those whom chose the more sedate. The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. This Saturday it is the de Stades - Maitlands, no shortcuts this time. Realitively easy and on top (almost) of the mountain.The route is 8km in and along a stream, your feet will get wet as in totally submerged. Boots not on and rather water shoes or sandals (not slip slops). Afterwards there will be a braai, we need only take what we eat and drink. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. Bring the usual; to eat & drink, hat , sun screen ect.

Thanks for the idea and Maristha for all the O&M.“Sugarman’s” Daughter Eva Rodriguez to Talk in PE Saturday - for 12.30 A two-course Lunch by Flava chef John Burger including free wine and Cash Bar Hellenic Hall, Connyngham Rd, Parsons Hill R150-00 Tickets are up for sale for lunch with Eva Rodriguez – daughter of US musician Sixto Rodriguez who was the subject of this year’s Oscar award-winning documentary Searching for Sugarman.

Eva – whose fascinating life story includes not only her father’s legacy but also flying Black Hawks and Hueys in US military strikes (including Desert Storm in Iraq) and embracing her Native American roots – has graciously agreed to talk at a fundraiser for Soroptimist International of Port Elizabeth (SIPE).

Meet at Jimmies Book Store cnr of Clarendon and Buffelsfontein Rd, Mount Pleasant. C'mon lets make it a good one, like all the others.

We had a great trip to the Zuurberg, a tough hike, saw animals, fantastic evening salads braai and all (not a drop of dop - so it can be done), lekker nights sleep, a grand walk about in the orange orchards, chat to the owners, then as a finale 30 minutes laughter.

Eva’s talk promises to be personal and interesting , not only with regard to her famous father’s journey to musical recognition thanks to a massive tide of South African support when he was barely known at home in the US.

Songs like Sugarman and I Wonder were staples in the vinyl collections of South Africans in the 70s and 80s and millions owned his album Cold Fact.

Eva’s childhood was financially tough and her father’s sudden discovery and invitation to tour South Africa in 1998 was an astonishing shift.
