Well done Lysh! I am so proud of you! You must have picked up on that BFF (Best Friends Forever) intuition I was sending out to you! Must have been an average night for you to be home at 3.30am and on the internet! Don't worry, 4 weeks and I will be back there, Stu will be on stage, and we will be drunk!
Went to the mall in Pretoria today - the second biggest mall in the Southern Hemisphere. Its was nuts! The people were so pretentious! Gucci everywhere, floor to ceiling mirrors in the girls toilets, someone handing you paper towels to dry your hands with and on it goes. It was quite surreal after the stuff we have seen so far. Made us quite angry!
Stuart did, however, buy a new camera. A really, really good Sony Digital with a couple of lenses. Hes charging it now and eagerly awaiting a play with it. We have already taken 20 rolls of film on our other camera and it was going to get a bit pricey! Films are also getting harder to get hold of so we decided to play it safe and upgrade :o)
We fly to Singapore tomorrow, and we are going to post heaps of stuff home which will be a lot of weight of our backs! Most of our group flew out today which was strange. Its bizare to spend 2 weeks in such close proximity with people, and then just say "See ya, have a nice life!".
We are both very content with our Africa leg, and don't feel sad saying goodbye because we feel that we experienced everything we wanted to and got as much out of it as we possibly could. We are both talking about coming back eventually though, and doing a few of the more northern countries. We are a little bit scared about India, apparantly its pretty full on! The heat is going to be a shock because its not actually that hot in Africa. There was a frost this morning! Weird huh! Its freezing at night, and boiling hot during the day!
Well now that we (mainly Marcelle) have droned on about nothing really, we will sign off.
Hopefully get some blogging time in Singapore and Delhi.
Lukes 21st sounds awesome mum! Lol! Would have been good to see Boozel. Did Luke have a good night?
We might have to have a slide night when we get home lmao!
Love to everyone, hope your not too hungover Lysh.
Marcelle and Stu
