Angolan Pinotage


The Pinotage infection is spreading relentlessly over the African continent. Rumour insists that Beyers Truter is planting it for a general in the highlands of Angola. Which comes as no surprise when Angolan president José Eduardo Dos Santos is the richest Brazilian while his daughter Isabel continues to snap up Port quintas in Portugal.

Meanwhile it looks like the demented whale cottage blogger of indeterminate sex has decided to give up on guest houses and try travel with news breaking of the Sky Whale. The Daily Mail asks is this “the future of air travel? Three-storey Sky Whale carries 755 passengers, has virtual reality windows and ‘self-healing’ wings.” Forget about ‘self-healing’ wings. In this case, ‘self-cleaning’ bathrooms are more to the point as whale cottages are famous for showers blocked with pubic hair and a lack of toilet paper.
