Long Weekend in Stellenbosch

Yesterday was a public holiday in South Africa, Human Rights Day. My boss was very nice and gave us today off as well.  So we are visiting my sister in Cape Town for the long weekend. 

The main reason for the visit was the Cape Epic Mountain Bike Challenge that is currently taking place around Cape Town.  My brother and his wife are both professional mountain bikers and are taking part as a mixed team.  They won last year and is doing very good this year. They won the prologue and 4 of the 5 stages that have been completed.   We came to go watch some of the cycling.

Today we made an unexpected trip to Stellenbosch to drop a package and decided to walk around a bit.  I will write more about what we saw but in the mean time here are some photos:
