Re: I'm not that big of a whimp ;-)
I have always been a little bit of a Geography geek, and SA is actually one of the places I would really like to visit. I followed everything carefully when Mandela was released etc. I truly think it is a very interesting place. Right now I don't see how I will ever be able to go, we simply can't afford to. I live in the way northern part of Florida, so whatever you have seen on TV with palm trees and blue water etc, is not correct. I like it much better here as we have four seasons, and tons of stuff to do.
Let me quote Mark and let you know that you all inspire me! I learn a lot from you, and can only hope that one day I will find the same peace you have!
