WineTasting at the Guesthouse

Latter Days
- the movie. We spent an awesome Sunday afternoon WineTasting and watching gay movies here at the guesthouse. It was a Facebook Event we created for the group Gay Durban.

Christian (Wes Ramsey), a hunky, 20-something, West Hollywood party boy gets more than he bargains for when he tries to seduce 19-year-old Elder Aaron Davis (Steve Sandvoss), a sexually confused Mormon missionary who moves into his apartment complex. When Christian exposes Davis' secret sexual desire, Davis' rejects Christian for being shallow and empty, The encounter shatters each boy's reality and draws the two into a passionate romance that risks destroying their lives. Latter Days is a charming, sexy, and moving tale that will leave yo
u believing in the transformational power of love.

Inbetween this, we had a little Lanzerac 1999 Cabernet Savignon, some Douglas Green 2006 Cabernet Savignon, a little Woolies Chardonay and some Tall Horse Merlot (the latter was actually the best).

Back to the movies, we followed up the wine and first movie with a second -
Shortbus.. a movie which had its Premiere at the Cannes Film Festival - lots of sex scenes and planty of cock, but quite stirring as several couples work though their sexual and relationship woes.

Visit to Clarens

Our friend Ralph phoned us out of the blue and said that he was off to Clarens so would we join him for the weekend. We have not seen Ralphie for over 3 years and it was a great chance to meet half-way between Durban and Johannesbureg in the little Free State town of Clarens.

So off we went and had an awesome weekend. The big surprize was meeting the top Durban and South African band Stealing Love Jones whose lead singer and drummer played to a lucky little group in the pub Friends in the heart of Clarens.
In the photos from top are:

Dave (right) gets to meet Isaac the lead drummer and Esjay Jones of the famous group Stealing Love Jones who wowed the Clarens fans. Llew and Dave stop to catch a photo of the rocks. And in the bottom picture, Llewellyn poses in a section of the pipe used to tunnel water through about 40kms from Lesotho to South Africa in the Lesotho Highlands Water project just outside Clarens.
