Week 2 first whole day off

cleaning a snoek=
We had a very nice meet and greet las night with the cast and crew.
I was very careful with the booze 2 beers and 3 bottles of water.
Richard bought a Snoek (not what we call snoek in NL more like a barracuda type) and invited the director Paula and actrice Carice and actor Liam with some extra friends.
We made the snoek with mixed veggies and I had bought a huge trout the other night and made it with Spinach and cherry tomatos.

Not to shitty, Finishing with the famous plums in sugar and butter.
A smile on everybody’s face.
plums sugar butter=
Carice talked us into a murder game, it was really fun. I murdered Richard.
Went to bed at 2:30 I believe and woke up at 6:00.
Just could not sleep anymore.
My free day I need to recover from last week, tomorrow the circus is starting, day 1 of shooting “Black Butterflies” on International Woman’s Day.

One more thing, we drove home from work yesterday. There was a movie shoot in front of our apartment. My window was open and a guy said HEY FIR, what the fock ‘Vuks Ngcingwana” one of the soldiers of Wit Licht. He lives in Port Saint Johns and works here in Cape Town, this world is way too small.

More food

Caveau food and wine bar=
Ohh where do I start.
Just around the corner of where I stay is caveau.
Nice food little bites of everything, good wine the works.
Had very nice company as well, so what do you or in this case I want more, except more food and more wine.

What do you do if your all alone in Cape Town

belthazar wine bar=
My boss needed an evening with the bobo’s, so I went to waterfront.
Waterfront is a sort of Disneyworld for shops and restaurants. The rich and famous are parading there and in the mall’s you can buy everything for way to much money.
There is only one thing I don’t mind to pay some serious dough, that’s food and drink.
First I eat some sushi at Willoughby & Co. Weird new style fried sushi with all kinds of colored wrappers and lots of mayonaise.
Then I went to a winebar where my boss took me the first day I arrived.
Belthazar as you see on the picture a very nice style bar with over 250 open wines and they have 600+ bottles all South African.
Not cheap at all at R69 for my first Beyerskloof reserve 2007 and R66 for my nice glass of kloovenberg Shiraz.

Took a cab home had to tell him where I lived and showed him how to drive.
So he was fired 🙂
But hey try to get a cab in Amsterdam for R25, they will not even talk to you.

First week in Cape Town

this grill was so hot I think 500 degrees=
Hi Y’all,
Fist week on the Butterflies, no free day yet and I’m not even complaining.
Eating and drinking well as you all know.
The picture is made very quick, it was so hot that my lens nearly melted. As all the hairs on my arm.
We had 3 days in a row with Tech Recce, that when you go to ALL the locations we are going to shoot.
I make a lot of pictures of all the details I need and am cataloging them as I’m typing (I needed a break).
So we start filming on Monday the 8th (international woman’s day)
A hell of a ride, and I try to keep up with the pace.

Happy Birthday Di
