Went to Africa, took some photos, enjoy! (No 56k)

Well, things are getting pretty serious with my girlfriend, so we decided to do a vacation to South Africa and 'meet the parents'. We were there for quite a while and I took hundreds of photos, but here is a sample.

The place is crazy. food is cheap, cars expensive, Eskom and BEE stinks.

Overall, other than the crime, the place is pretty cool. Snowed on us once, and there are several ski resorts, which I didn't know about or I would have brought my board. On a side note, the 37hour plane ride was the worst thing imaginable. It's recorded as the longest commercial flight in history. Total flight time is 37hours on 5 planes, but the longest section is 18hours from DC to Joburg.

Anyways, on with the pics:

What were you doing in SA? My soon to be fiance is from there, so I was able to get the personal tour. Nice country, but the crime was horrible. I do worry about the future of the country though. Zuma and Mbeki have really messed it up.

Re: Went to Africa, took some photos, enjoy! (No 56k)

i went to military academy/ boarding school in pretoria and joburg.

crime is not that big, not as big as outsiders see it.

i mean i walked alone or with buddies late at night or very early morning in the streets of pretoria.

there are places that you will no go to ok sure!

the main thing over there is what they call "hijack'' if you got a chance when u get back there look for the movie!
thats when they steal ur car at a stop light. but its legal to have flame thrower on ur car over there, i am serious.

yeah Mbeki is really fucking it up, and it is a shame, it is such a nice place to live, and the people are so nice too.
i can be such a racist punk, but i lived 15 years in africa (out of 23) and miss living with black people around.

life is so cheap over there, with 15 dollars u can have a fun afternoon.

and like i said, i miss the pubs, nothing better than watching some rugby or F1 or football (soccer) than in a pub, with ur buddies drinking from a 5 gallon pitcher of ice cold castle larger, and eating fatty food out of a basket!

i ll be going back there soon, i hope.

ps: they got the sexiest blondes over there.
