What an amazing thing when you have in independent friends. I use the word “independent” to describe friends who don’t expect anything from you, don’t insist on seeing you, spending time with you or having long conversations,, but when you do eventually see each other, you give each other what true friends should, spend quality time and catch up on everything that has been going on since the last time you spent time together.
Two such friends are Martin and Natasha. On our way to buy dinner last night, we drove past them, pulled over and inevitably invited them over for a glass of wine. Later on the evening we prepared a cheese platter with some salmon, cured meat, and some good Babylonstoren bread that we made malba toast from.
This is friendship. This is The Winelands. This is good!
