It’s our first day in Cape Town and I’m blown away by our accommodations. We were picked up by a private driver to our 5 star hotel. Felt odd gliding by miles of shanty houses in a car that was pure luxe. It feels even stranger as we’re ushered up to our top floor suite with a balcony over looking the water. I notice a seal playing down there while Cele and I soak all of this in. Celia may be used to this, but I am not. I could get used to being her trophy wife. None of the other superstar chefs wanted to go out for the planned supper that night so we got a taste of African cuisine with a traditional dance show all on our own. Completely campy and touristy but fun. I got to taste a new animal, springbok. I really need to make a check box list of animals I’ve eaten.

About RYFB

So what's up with this blog name Robert's Your Father's Brother? If you're not British I'm sure you're asking that exact question. Basically, it's an elaborate way of saying Bob's Your Uncle, which is a British phrase used at the end of a sentence or collection of instructions which means "and there you have it", "that's that" or "you're all set".

I created this blog as a once-a-day photo journal of my new life in London. I'm starting this discipline as a way to always be looking around and admiring this amazing city. Also, life has been stranger than fiction since I've moved here. I have to chronicle it so I don't get my facts mixed up with fiction later on.

So sit back, relax, enjoy and Bob's Your Uncle.

FAQS

You're a professional photographer, so why isn't every photo a work of art?

I started this so it could be fun and off the cuff. If I start thinking too much and staging photos it loses its soul and stops becoming enjoyable, especially if I have to do it everyday and live my life.

Can we be friends?

Of course! I have links to Facebook and Twitter to bring us closer. Also, please share any experiences you may have of the differences between the UK and the US. I would love to hear them.
