[Back of Postcard]
Finally, I have landed in South Africa. There were no problems with the ash cloud. I know how worried you were. I also haven't been mugged - read that article in the Telegraph if it helps - but I think I have been ambushed. It happened during this Spur advert and I have been eating their R69.95 deal (+-6 quid) ever since. I hadn't realised anyone but the sponsors were allowed to advertise during 2010. Anyway, everything is very cheap here. I bought myself an England hat that cost me 2 quid (back home it cost 20!) and I have got two Bafana Bafana souvenier shirts for Charley and Sue (saved 150 quid!). Someone told me they were fake but I don't believe them. Anway you try tell the fake from the real on the front of this postcard! And I mean the expensive ones are sold out. As expected I did catch flagitis - but managed to cure it by making a cross on my body using suntan cream. The red on white works quite nicely. Gotta go - downloaded the Vuvuzela ringtone and it's trumpeting..
Love you mum. Will write soon and please stop worrying.
