Blogging from South Africa

In theory yes...

sunny 37 °C

So I'm going on this 18-day safari in South Africa. The original plan was to blog continually through the trip, telling about what I'm experiensing either using internet cafes or through my phone. That was the plan.

In reality things went a bit different. I'm sure a lot of people will disagree with me when I'm saying SA is a difficult country to blog from, but in my case it's been all but impossible. First of all; any form of GPRS, 3G and WAP does not work with my Norwegian phone company at least. That leaves internet cafes. We've been visiting them once a week. A bit long between each time, but it's ok. I'm on a vacation so I'll live without 2/7 access. The problem in SA these days is that they have acute power shortage and they keep turning off the power in different areas of the countrey at different times so it's impossible to know when there is power or not. Because of that this is the first time I'm able to blog, in the last week of the trip, hence this rant.

Anyway; yesterday me and Asta and Christofe from the group went bungy jumping from the highest bunjy in the world - or so they claim. 216m at Bloukrans; awesome :D This was the first time for all of us and we had a blast!
