    FINALLY!! Finally! Finally I'm going on a real vacation!

    To bring it into perspective, let me first say that I've been to almost all the fifty States, Montreal & Quebec, Canada and Cancun, Mexico, but never -- NEVER!! -- have I been to where I'm going Aug. 20th. Yup, that's right: BOTSWANA!

    I'm so fuckin' psyched! I've always wanted to visit Africa (although, my first choice would've been Cairo, Egypt, but who the hell cares...).

    I'm going to visit a friend who'll be staying there until mid-September. I, however, will only be staying for a week. And as if that wasn't enough, that same friend is going to Paris (in mid-September) and I'll be visiting him THERE in October!

    Oh, yes, I-AM-PSYCHED!! I would say the obligatory, "I've always wanted to go to Paris", but c'mon, is it necessary? Who hasn't desired to visit Paris?

    But, but, but ... I didn't only start this thread to gloat. In fact, that's hardly the case. I'm curious to know if anyone has ever been to Africa -- more specifically, South Africa (or, what would be even more helpful is if anyone has actually been to Botswana) and could tell of anything I should try to do while there? I hear the offical language is English, so getting around won't be THAT hard (plus, the guy I'm going to visit is somewhat fluent in Setswana). So, yeah, any ideas?? (For either country).

    Now I'm almost tempted to bring you with me! I can't draw, sketch or color to save my life, but if I did, I'd draw everything I saw on my trip. Even stuff that probably wouldn't make sense. :biggrin1:

    Cool man! Feel free to bring me along, lol.

    ITs cool to try drawing what you can, give it a shot. You never know what you'll create. I'm tempted to post drawings on this site....though, I have no idea what I'd post, considering the nature here. Perhaps I should draw some "large penised" people.....

    ....On second thought. No. That seems like a bad idea, lol.

    Now, where did you get a crazy notion like that? That's possibly one of the best ideas ever had. :wink:

    Cool buddy! Enjoy it...sorry, nothing to add, as you know I'm not much of a travler. Pics are a must though, for those of us who will probably never get the chance to see such magnificent sights. :smile:

    Gonnie! I so amped for ya! You should write to dong20. He spends lots of time living in different parts of Africa, and maybe he'll have good advice (or people to meet) for you!

    Aww baby, that sounds amazing! I hope your friend takes you around to all the places he loves, you get so much better of a tour that way. Please take pics for us, I regret not taking pics on my travels.

    If the opportunity presents itself and you have the chance, it would be cool if you could pop in and say hi from there.

    Wow, I almost missed this- my daughter gave me that book to read, and I only got to the first few chapters. I'm going to have to dig it up and finish it, I loved the style and Julianna says it's among her favorites.
