    I don't know why but I'm obsessed with the idea of traveling to South Africa. The white girls there with their SA accents (no racist), but just the country in general, and location. I'm completely obsessed. I've traveled the world, for the most part, but I REALLY want to go there. Has anyone here been, who can share some details on how it was? It seems like paradise to me; a sort of weird mix between a modern western world, and a more basic, survival existence.

    I've been to Syria(before the war), I've been to New Zealand, I've been to the US, I've been to Lebanon, China, Fiji, Australia, India...I've been to almost every country in Europe. But I haven't been to South Africa. I don't know why, but it seems like Paradise to me. So far away and secluded from the rest of the world's bullshit.

    I have been to pretoria and was never more scared in my entire life. Was supposed to be there 21 days but left after 3. I totally pretended to be very sick. It was a ghetto or super rich. Race war going on. I felt like a sacrificial lamb and kept hidden.

    Hope you have a lovely time. I hear the coast is nice.

    You should go, the blacks are real friendly there tell them how much better off they had it under apartheid and call them ""nigga" and they'll probably buy you a drink.

    Concentrate on passing your classes. We're tired of the crying and the whining. Go study!

    No shit, four days into his self improvement and he's thinking of ways to spend his dad's money again instead of getting down to business.

    Would it be wrong to send him there on a cannibal safari and not tell him he was dessert?

    Just got back; it was wonderful. Went on a photo safari, then spent 4 days in Cape Town. Prices are great. I would advise hiring a private driver to show you around the Cape and other parts of the country. Unfortunately we could not stay longer to see more but we will definitely go back. I will say be careful, especially in J'burg, as petty crime is always a concern. It is Africa. Also, the best flight is the direct from ATL/JNB. Wear compression socks and drink lots of water.

    I'm guessing you have a job, son, and didn't expect your father to pay for the trip. Glad you had a good time.
