Nothing exciting. Just a note that I've put our future destinations in Africa in as I'm suspecting internet access will be very limited and it's a bugger to do on a slow connection. Anything on the map that is a dotted line is "in the future" - the lines go solid as the dates pass.
We've found a cheapo hotel in Cairo and are soaking up the city atmosphere until the 7th when we fly to Cape Town to start our African adventure.
I've also edited the template for the blog as it's more suited to larger photos. Should be a little less messed up now!
Oh a note for smokers out there (Yes, I know, smoking kills... etc) - I bought 200 at a shop - you will never guess how much! £3.50. Yep. £3.50 - for 200!!! That's 35 pence a packet. And they are good. So when people tell you your smoking is costing the NHS loads of money in healthcare - total nonsense. I reckon, at 35p a pack, after markting, transport, storage, retail markup, they probably cost about 2-5 pence a pack to make. So when you are paying £6 a pack in the Uk you are giving about £5.95 to the government. Smokers should get VIP private medical healthcare!
