In the early afternoon of July 26th, I walked out of Stanza Dei Sigari, a cigar bar in the North End of Boston, and began my journey to South Africa by catching a cycle rickshaw to South Station. Two days later, after a smoke-scented train ride to NYC, an evening in the city, a 19 hour flight, and a 200 rand cab ride, I finally arrived in the Observatory neighborhood of Cape Town. Since then, life here has been nothing short of living the 3L dream. Because of my enthusiasm for the experiences I have had while here, I decided to enlighten the readers back home with some of the highlights—and low points—of beverage culture here in the Western Cape province of South Africa.
