Thank god, it's a new year.

Now-- can we pretend this last one didn't happen? There were some highlights of this year, of course-- I got married, I definitely enjoyed the life in Cape Town at times-- but in short, let's just say that this experiment of staying settled was a big FAIL.

But I'm not going to dwell on the year that's passed. Thankfully, we will soon be on the move once more. The countdown has started, and from today we have 25 full days left living in Cape Town before we head back to Asia. As excited as I am to go, however, I don't want to let my last days in South Africa slip by unappreciated. So for the rest of my time here, it's my goal to post one entry a day for each of the 25 days about South Africa. So enjoy this last glimpse from the cape, and welcome to the new year.

Hope yours is looking brighter too.

Hey Jen! We are indeed off once again. We've had a good time in Cape Town (mostly) but it's just too isolated, and we really miss Asia! So next month we're taking off, and heading back to Bangkok, Taiwan, and Malaysia for about two months. Then we're heading back to the states for awhile... and maybe then back to Taiwan! A lot of changes around here...

Piesang will no longer be trading at the market, but we're hoping to continue with our catering/cooking in other forms. Maybe we'll take our baking with us, and work on doing rich Western cakes, pies, and cookies back east... -X
