SOUTH AFRICA | Saturday, 17 January 2009 | Views [386] | Comments [5]

 Hi Everyone,

After an emotional farewell we have landed in South Africa and are staying at Mufasa Lodge.  It's a lovely place run by a hudband and wife team, John & Toini and we've settled in nicely...well at least we like to think so, Licci is feeling a little perculiar and out of sorts but she'll come round soon!!!

We're having dinner with the folks here tonight, our first proper Braai in SA!  THere are a few dogs here which add to the family feel!  The weather is really hot, the pool is inviting, the beer is spot-on and there is either a lot to do, or not much at all...depends on your mood!  We're just chillin' for a bit!  Would most like to do a safari of some sorts and maybe a guided tour into Jo'burg (complete with armoured vehicle!!)

Missing everyone very much and you're always in our thoughts.  Ta ra for now!

Licci & Jay




Have a lion or castle lager on me.
Miss u both.Love dad and mum.
