Haha, thank you. I'm so bloody tired of people asking me if I had lions in my back garden. SOUTH AFRICA IS MORE TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED THAN SOME PLACES IN CANADA. I've seen more wildlife in Canada than I ever did back home!

I'm also bloody tired of people asking me whether or not I lived in a mud hut. I just stare at them and inquire whether or not they live in igloos. Usually shuts them up.

Sorry to hear that hiphop. I hope for a speedy and uneventful recovery. You will make your way to Africa some day; it is definitely in your cards.

My dad is ill and will have a serious operation in January, it makes no sense to go to Africa in February.

We already bought plane tix but will have to return them.

If you feel like it, pray for my dad.

I'm so sorry to hear about that, hiphop. You and your father are in my thoughts.

I've been asked so many ignorant ridiculous qs here in the US when I first got here, it's insane!!

Some examples: "Do you, like, wear clothes in Africa?? "

"Do you know what a computer is?"

"Do you, like, know what chocolates are? Don't you guys, like cook wild animals?"
