Flying South

The Final Countdown – 1 (Thursday)

SOUTH AFRICA | Thursday, 6 February 2014 | Views [294]

It seems a little weird to think that today was my last full day in the country before heading home. It’s going to feel quite strange coming back to the UK after so long away but I’m very glad that I’ve still got a week after I get back before I start back to work. Still, my flight being tomorrow evening, a lot of today was spent sorting and prepping so it doesn’t take too long to pack in the morning. I’ve got a 30kg hold luggage and 7kg cabin luggage allowance but I got an awful lot of books for Christmas so I’ll probably be doing a bit of shuffling around to hit the allowances. Hopefully I won’t have to leave anything behind but I’ve checked the costs and an extra 5kg would cost me R2415 which is about £135 so I suspect anything over weight will be staying here, for now at least.

Other than that today I took Amy for a last lunch with just the two of us. Deb will be joining us tomorrow I think. We went local because Amy had stuff to do afterwards but we had some of the most amazing pizza. This evening was spent at the theatre in the Monte Casino complex watching Rocky Horror. We were a touch late going in so I didn’t bother grabbing an audience participation pack in the foyer – bad move! It’ the first time I’ve seen Rocky Horror at the theatre and I have to say it was bloody amazing. The whole cast were fabulous and the guy playing Frank-N-Furter was awesome. He had a real repartee going with the audience and wasn’t afraid to confront them when necessary to “keep control”! All in all an awesome way to spend my last evening here.
