I am back in South Africa, and really enjoying all the benefits of civilization. I didn't realize how much I missed it. When I got to the Johannesburg airport, I got a latte and strolled around the airport enjoying all the little things like not worrying continuously whether someone was gonna steal my bag or not, like clean tile floors and carpeting, like air conditioning, like sweet-smelling people and stores, like bathrooms with running water and soap and flush toilets and toilet paper, like no flies or ants...yeah it was wonderful.
By the way, it is freezing here! I went straight from waking up sweating in the night to waking up shivering in the night - crazy!
