…are staying in the Vineyard Hotel in Newlands, Cape Town. I checked by blog and found out that I stayed there back in November 2005 (entry is on this page, dated 28 November). It was a lovely hotel – far too good for our overpaid, underperforming football stars. At the time I was attending a conference on lung disease in my role as a science editor, but I managed to tag on three very enjoyable days of visiting some of South Africa’s leading wineries.
That’s one of the great things about running a blog. Since 2001 I have chronicled my drinking life in rather too much detail. Even if it is of limited interest to others, it’s great to look back on in retrospect.
My team for the must-win game next Wednesday (4-4-1-1):
James – Johnson, Terry, Dawson, Cole A – Wright Phillips, Lampard, Barry, Cole J – Gerrard – Rooney
