Peli Peli, Houston’s South African Sunset

Enjoy South African Cuisine in Houston Peli Peli for South African Fusion My husband and I traveled into the Uptown District of the city of Houston for an exotic tasting experience at a local restaurant called Peli Peli, which specializes in South African fusion. Under a dome-shaped room with warm LED lights accentuating waves, like the soft South Africa sands, I took in the ambiance.

I had already been inside the Nelson Mandela Capture site and apartheid museum, outside of the city of Howick, in the Natal Midlands. The Long...

Penguins in Africa

Swimming with Penguins in Africa While admiring the ocean view that my American expat friends Yolanda and her husband Tanner had from their home in Cape Town, Yolanda approached me with a wet suit and said we were taking a ride to Boulder Beach. I’d traveled to South Africa to heal a broken heart. Seeing the world is one thing that fills my life when other dreams shrivel away. As we drove out of the city, past Zebra grazing in the hills, gorgeous Table Mountain looming in the background, Yolanda told me we were going to swim with the...
