Saturday Spot: Se7en Visit The Breakfast Show, Expresso…

So this is the year that I promised to take outings more seriously, and be a bit more adventurous than just going around the corner. So when Amy from SABC3’s breakfast show, Expresso, contacted us and asked if we would like to visit their Television Set, I responded sure… And into the traffic we launched!!!


Heaps of morning traffic!!!

As we drove to the far side of town…

Excitement was palpable and no one was phased by the car time!!!

And another tall, tall building…

And an indoor waterfall…

And a chance to try out the Breakfast Show’s Studio… “Good Morning South Africa!!!”

And the weather today will be…

“Partly cloudy and hot.”

A little bit of a serenade…

And some news readers…

And a very short news reader!!!

And a test of the kitchen, a chef has to do what a chef has to do!!!

There was an attempted gathering of the troops…

And one escapee…

There were races on the roof…

And some rest and recovery…

Well actually not much chance of a rest!!!

And some chatting in the outdoor nook…

And a trial in the exercise area…

And the find of the day:

Just look at that ball!!!

And a walk along the waterfront to get over the excitement…


And then we followed the tour bus into the city center…

If you have to pass through town then you really should stop at Charly’s for a treat!!!

And an ooo and an aaa at the cakes…

And delight at those chandeliers… (that’s the one that inspired my daughter!!!)

How cute are they!!!

And a picking and choosing…

And one of us needed this:

Because lets face it one of us had got eight kids up and across town really early!!! Take a look again!!!

Ready, Steady, Munch…

Gone, yum!!!

Thanks Charly’s Bakery for another great feast!!! Thanks Amy for a wonderful tour of your early morning world!!!
