    It appears to me that banks and other financial institutions swing you round by the short and curlies when it comes to travel cards and using your credit cards overseas.

    ... took lovely showers and ate dinner while watching Aladdin on TV. It was a nice relaxing evening.

    So, first impressions. I'm in the southern hemisphere! AHHH! I just can't quite get over the fact that I'm in SOUTH AFRICA. It's so cool! It's an interesting place.
