Enjoying Springbok shooters in Dinosaurs
We were picked up from the airport by Candice (Lauras friend from Camp America) and her boyfriend Rodi. We are staying with candice and her family for the next week.  Before long I realised what a good chance this was going to be to see how some white people live in South Africa.  Instantly we noticed the differences in sercurity between South Africa and home. All the houses have high walls, big electric gates and 24hr armed response. Also Candices family have a maid, mum you could do with one of these :-)

Monday relaxed by the pool in the garden and ate ice cream.

On tuesday we visited a flee market, it was quite annoying when the stall sellers pester you to look at the items on the stall. Another ice cream consumed!!

On wednesday we went to a theme park, this was brilliant because it was so empty so we could walk straight on to all the rides.  The weather has been beautiful since arriving in Jo'bug-It was 27degrees at 5pm!  In the evening we went to a bar candice and Rodi used to work at, it was really fun, we drank lots of Sangria and enjoyed a well deserved dance.

I heard the city is unsafe, true?
