Before christmas I spent about 6 weeks in southern africa with my dad. We visited South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe.

Here follows a list of things I learnt while there.

  • White people in the past were arseholes. To each other let alone the locals.
  • White people are still arseholes.
  • rolling blackouts are called load shedding
  • there are a lot of elephants in botswana
  • you can get bored of seeing elephants
  • elepahant meat is supposedly quite tasty
  • south africa has a craft beer scene
  • what happens when a shark is spotted at Fish Hoek beach
  • the big hole in kimberley is big
  • Zimbabwe now uses other peoples currencies

Of course Im also open to offers for meeting up for drinks while Im passing through your area. Im always up for drinks. hmmm tasty beer.
Which is why for the first week of August I will mostly be at the GBBF. Just to make sure I've drunk enough real ale to keep me going until I get back :).
