Goundens

Being a great fan of the bunny, I have been meaning to give Goundens a try since it is supposed to be the best spot in Durban. I set out to meet Charles there early on Friday evening. It is not in the best part of town (39 Eaton Road, Umbilo, Durban), but we felt pretty safe leaving our cars outside.

I am a big fan of a vegetable bunny. My first option was thus a 1/4 mixed vegetable. No good, all finished. Okay, well, guess it will be the beans with mutton gravy then. Also finished. Hmmmm. This is what happens when you arrive late on a Friday afternoon. In the end we both settled on a 1/4 beef bunny.

After a short wait in the interesting little restaurant (stretching the point a bit to give it that label), the bunnies arrived. They looked like they do all over the city: large chunk of white bread oozing gravy. But the difference became apparent when we attacked the poor defenseless things: they were damn delicious. The meat very tender and the spices just right.

On leaving we decided that this could easily be a regular Friday afternoon activity.

Cycle-Powered Tree


Running along the Durban beachfront on Sunday morning I spotted this enormous tree made out of planks. Lights in the tree are hooked up to stationary bicycles. Pedal power gets the lights to go on. So I went back around sunset to take some photos. This one was taken with ND2 and ND4 filters and then processed with Qtpfsgui.

Running Play List

I own an iPod but I don't run with it. The idea of cables flapping around does not appeal to me. However, I have been thinking: if I did run to music, what would be on the playlist? I know that a few of the folk that I ran the NDC with had an iPod with them "in case times got tough". Not a bad plan. So this is the starts of my running play list:

Dr. Dre, Skylar Grey & Eminem - I Need a Doctor
Journey - Don't Stop Believin'
Def Leppard - Have You Ever Needed Anyone
Band of Horses - The Funeral

Suggestions?
