It's been an awesome 2011... now for 2012!!

As we rush headlong to 2011, thanks to all of our guests and readers for making this a great year for us. Not as awesome as 2010 with the World Cup Football in South Africa but we met loads of new friends from across the globe and now look forward to 2012 and the new opportunities and friends we will meet.

Tonight we are having a braai with guests at the guesthouse and will continue the party on the roof and jacuzzi till 2012.

The Prince and Princesses

Our COP17 guests Peter (left) and Bernado (right) were delighted to meet a real Prince - Albert of Monaco - whilst helping organise the Climate Change Conference in Durban. Self-styled as "Exquisiteness Highness Prince(ss) Peter James 111 of Melbourne, and Bedazzlement Highness Princess Bernado 1 of Montejumbura" meeting with His Serene Highness Prince Albert 11 of Monaco. Nice one guys, although Bernado you could have cleaned up your face for the meeting :-) 

Dave visits the COP17 Expo

Guest Nicolas de Klerk designed and built this stand at the Expo - crafts made of recycled materials

Taking time out to visit the Climate Change Expo where his guests have been hard at work for 2 weeks, guesthouse co-owner Dave meets up with our Dutch guests Jeroen and Lennard. In the 2nd photo the Siemens motorbike is a fully electric model going for 120kms before needing recharging and with a top speed of 160kmh. Dave adds his "green pledge" to the Tree of Pledges at the Conference. And in the last place, the "font of all knowledge" Dave hams it up at the information kiosk.
