As usual, baie mooi. Ek hou van die laste een. (Forgive me, I have forgotten how to spell in Afrikaans. I think on my next visit to S.A. in June I am going to have to invest in a dictionary).

you lucky fish you, and of course your exchange rates help quite a bit too ;)
Well I wouldn't be so excited to go back except for the fact that for the first time in my life I can go to the game reserves with a decent camera. I won't just see a speck in the middle of the picture. And yes, the exchange rate does help.:smile:
