on being in a civilised country

I'm in South Africa now - just touched down yesterday and it is SO good to be in a non-developing country... to be able to have people who understand you do something efficiently, and to have roods that are actual roads and to not have people bugging the crap out of you to buy a painting or a safari or a taxi ride every second of the day is a real treat when you've been in subsahran africa.
We actually have our own car.... WITH AIR CONDITIONING and a radio that plays good music. We are staying at one of my buddy's houses, which means no worries about bed bugs or theft and it comes with a hot shower and towels as well as free internet.
Karoline and I are excited about S. Africa! We've got about 17 days here and are looking forward to driving the coast, visiting capetown and joberg doing many wine tastings and driving on the wrong side of the road... should be fun!
