Greetings from Jo'burg

Subject: Greetings from Jo'burg Hello from the airport lounge here, where the group--minus Eduardo--is awaiting a flight to Windhoek. Poor Eduardo got caught up in previously unknown bureaucracy which requires that there be at least one free page in one's passport, which he did not have. As a result, he will join us next week instead.

Taking lots of pictures, but have not found a reasonable way to upload them yet, hoping to be able to when we get to our first hotel.

Hope your trip on the Yangtze went swimmingly! (boo...) Cheers--SD

Would any RCDS member wish to help me find Bongo Bongo land?

Blog Entry


Pse see attached entry. Couldnt send to Linebook Blog for some reason. I am no longer a Blog virgin.

At a recent seminar facilitated by MG (about reconstruction and exit strategiezzzzzzzzzzz) members were in the normal mid-seminar state (ie hopeing that MG would not look at them again and expect more erudite comments. We perked up, however when a member from South Asia (not India) who was making some very meaningful comments, was heard to say ??.and we have a Catch 69 situation?.?.

Can any MA member help with this concept?
