Post-Comminution '10

An email in from John and Donna Starkey, who were at Comminution '10. They had a wonderful time yesterday in Cape Town, taking the cable car to the top of Table Mountain in the morning.  They then had afternoon tea at the Mount Nelson, and ended a perfect day on Signal Hill, watching the sun set.

They were lucky!  Today we drove through torrential rain, up the west coast to Paternoster.

Many thanks to Dave Capstick, of Deswik, South Africa, who emailed to say that he found Comminution '10 a very enjoyable, informative and thoroughly professional conference. He is very pleased to hear that we'll be back in Cape Town in two years for Comminution '12. He thanks us for one of the best run events that he has attended. We really appreciate your comments, Dave, which make our efforts worthwhile.  Ironic to think that if the conference had been scheduled one week later, it would not have taken place at all!

Amanda, stranded in Cape Town with Jon, should have arrived back in the UK today. She apologies that there will be no updates to MEI Online until her return. Her interview with our local UK radio station, the BBC's Radio Cornwall, can be heard by clicking here.


  1. Do youself a favor and go to Jacobsbaai and then to Langebaan (both about 30km from Paternoster)- well worth the trip. Once in Langebaan, drive back to Cpt through the nature reserve. Since you are toughing it out, you might as well do lunch at Geelbek in the reserve.

  2. Thanks. The plan is to drive to Tulbagh from here, then Franchhoek, before hopefully airport on Saturday
