From Gerald Potash’s newsletter of 16 February 2018
My coffee catch-up this week was a very, very early in the morning breakfast with Eli from Perth. Long before the coffee shop opened for orders, in fact only as the first of the staff arrived to clean the tables at Knead in Sea Point, we were chatting away, catching up as we do. Eli has been very busy with the Patriot’s song at schools and also taking the ‘Memories of Muizenberg’ exhibition all over the world. It is always great catching up with Eli and if a third person was with us on Sunday morning they would have to put their hand up into the air to even get a word in. We only meet once a year and there is a lot to talk about.
(I got a call from Eli on Tuesday, he was on a plane back to Jo’burg on his way back home to Perth and sitting next to him is a couple from Oz with whom he started chatting……that’s Eli…….anyway they tell him they have been touring in Cape Town and he asks with whom? Yup, Ian & Sally…..so on Sunday I was with them both. Small world!)
