We had a bit of trouble getting to South Africa (I blame British Airways), but we’re safely here, albeit without our luggage, and enjoying their chilly winter. I’m so glad I bought my Bench jacket! We had a great time in London with my dad’s cousin and his family (although it was completely unplanned) and in Johannesburg with another of my dad’s cousins and lots of other family. Port Elizabeth has been fun as well, and we’re heading to Addo Elephant Park shortly. The chances of there being internet there are extremely unlikely, so that’s the best update I can give until later. You’ll just have to ask me about the details when I get home, because I’m not going to be able to keep up with this blog! I hope you’re having the most wonderful summer. I’m having an excellent couple weeks of winter down here.
Until later!

A little burnt around the edges, but apparently it tasted pretty good anyway.

Sarah and I made an apple pie for the farewell dinner, but we had to  improvise a few things. No cutting board, and no rolling pin!
