Rain in the semi desert

Believe it or not, but yesterday it was raining in Porterville - during the dry season in what can almost be described as a semi desert. Unheard of. We blame our fellow Swedish pilot on the trip, Jenny Persson, who is an undercover rain goddess.

To try to please the gods we went wine tasting again, covering six wineries and 32 wines. Meerlust was first out, followed by a brilliant lunch (gemsbok!) at the restaurant 96 Winery Road. Then Ken Forrester, Uva Mira, Hidden Valley, Ernie Els and Peter Franke.

In the end it didn't help, today it is raining even more. What's going on with the weather in the world?
