Not long after Annie’s arrival we head up to the Vumba again. Apart from me getting up for sunrise every morning it is an extremely relaxing weekend with much walking, snoozing and reading of books. It really is a great place to go to relax.

One of the highlights is a visit to Tony’s Coffee Shoppe. An institution in the Vumba, no trip is complete without a visit. The prices are heavy, but the chocolate cake is even heavier and worth every cent. The hot chocolates that we have are so rich with chocolate that is difficult to finish a cup. That doesn’t stop Soph and I from having refills, however, and as a result we are feeling very queasy when we leave, but in a good, chocolatey way.
