In our family a trip to the Mount Nelson is obligatory (my Great Grandfather lived there for years) and even I have enjoyed a romantic interlude there! So in keeping with tradition one can’t do Tamboerskloof and not go to the Nellie for a sundowner or High Tea. We’d just missed High tea as the tinkle of china and silver was well under way and the cake trolleys were looking sparse, we settled for a Gin and Tonic on the patio. On a balmy Friday evening this place hums with the chatter of a hundred different accents. We reminisced about past parties and dinners there and thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the stoep in a look-alike Lloyd Loom wicker chair, that is progress for you, now it’s the synthetic all weather variety. I loved the huge eclectic collection of art in the garden and once again I was reminded of Maputo, Mumbai, Delhi, Hanoi and my rather sweet Singapore Sling, this time our bill was at a fraction of the price. After all this we were ready for a quick change and then dinner, so off we galloped up the hill to our guesthouse.
