Save the dates y’all! 1 comment

After much bargain hunting on the internet and money hunting in the bank accounts, I’m pleased to announce that we have finally procured us some tickets to come over and visit early next year.

Werner can come for three weeks (of which one will be a work week in the Cape Town office) and I decided to bite the bullet and fly out solo with the boys in order to score an extra week of sunshine and family happiness. Of course, once that line of reasoning had been opened, one extra week quickly became two and then three.

For the record, Adam, David and I arrive on 24 Jan, Werner arrives on 12 February and then we all fly back together on 4 March. We fly into JHB and will spend a little time in Pta and Plett and then of course Cape Town. (Haven’t sorted out the dates for internal travel yet)

I contacted the SA consulate in Washington to check visa requirement for David (who has a US passport) and was both pleased and slightly concerned to receive this speedy reply:

A USA passport holder does not require a visa for a period of 90 days stay in RSA. However, your child will be tread as a foreigner during his stay in RSA.

So y’all are standing on foreigners now? I thought you just overcharge them for steaks at the Waterfront.

Christmas has come and gone, the house has been packed and loaded, our winters clothing is at the ready. We’ve arrived in Pretoria (where it is noticeably hotter than in Cape Town) from where we will depart for Austin on Thursday. Adam is piloting this journey in style having been bought a ticket of his own (thanks Postilion).
