About the town..

Llewellyn and I have been having some fun out and about the town trying the different flavours of Durban. We have also extended an invitation to other gay guys from the Gay Durban Facebook group to join us. Our second little excursion was to Moyo Restaurant and beach pub at the uShaka Marine World complex near the harbour entrance on Sunday. The fusion/Afro decorated restaurant offers African and unique flavours drawn from many cultures and is a hit with the tourists. Above is a chicken platter we shared.

Lamp shades resembling jellly-fish fit in with the marine theme of the beachfront Acquarium where the restaurant is situated.

Face-painting and blankets if the sea breeze gets cool are just some of the quaint touches the restaurant offers.

Networking to grow together

Dave has been hard at work creating a new Gay Directory South Africa on Facebook.. the online site which is taking the world by storm. The biggest challenge which is so exciting is being able to integrate our blogs with Facebook and vice verse. This creates a huge online networking opportunity and sees the gay groups, individual personalities and websites in South Africa all interlinking.
