Great seeing Tatina again. Tatina spent a two-week holiday at her brother’s in Cape Town and on her way back home to Madeira she did a stop-over in Johannesburg to visit her aunt, cousin and friends.
Just as a small intro: Tatina alias Ana Cristina Pinto Teixeira was born in the beautiful city of Lourenço Marques. She studied in Johannesburg and has been living in beautiful Madeira for almost 40 years. Tatina is married to Jose Abreu dos Santos and they are the proud parents of three lovely daughters and a grandson.
Tatina’s flight landed at 17:05 and for anyone familiar with Johannesburg that is congestion time – you don’t want to find yourself driving on the motorway. So the sensible thing to do was to head to the InterContinental for a light meal or at least a cappuccino and chocolate cake. Tatina opted for a small, tiny Appletiser and nothing to eat because as she said, she was/ is on a diet. Ladies are forever on diet hey? We had a fantastic social and much reminiscing.
As a footnote for anyone interested: Johannesburg international is a very busy airport – world class as it has always been and the InterContinental is a superb hotel but pricey!
