I made it to the airport and have a 5 hour layover before I head to South AFrica. I sat by a couple from Belguim and they were quite friendly. Their daughter did a world tour, found an Aussie and now lives in Sydney. They spent the last two weeks with her for holiday.
The airport here is fantastic. They have many duty free shops and a lot of people are shopping. I am still in search of the gym or really, just not sitting for the next few hours. I survived the 8 hour stretch by sleeping, watching the Bourne Supremacy and The Jane Austen Book Club--yes, cheesy, chick flick, and concluded with Ugly Betty. That show is funny. I only caught about 13 minutes of the pilot, but I understand why people watch it. I enjoyed it and look forward to being able to marathon it on my flight to Joburg.
I am okay. The tea tree oil stings, a little, but I know that the bite is finally getting better. I am going to do another salt rub/bath once I get to Joburg. Plus, I think I will purchase some vodka to disenfect it if I can't find alcohol. It should be interesting.
I am fine, really. I am positive that Joburg will be an interesting place. And, the aboriginees are no picnic in Australia. Actually, the are frightful people who I avoided at all costs.
