Well i don't know what kind of shot you take when coming to SA, but one thing is for sure, we don't have malaria in SA. If we do it's not common, surely you will need to take shots for other deseases though. Where did your friend go?
Yep beach until february depending on how sensitive you are to the cold. If not sensitive then even march because i know even on good friday holidays people usually for holidays at the beach.
It will be nice, especially if you visit Soweto. It's a wonderfull place though it's the ghetto.
Actually they said i have features like you all, for instance my nose is small and cute, not broad at all and not that in SA there are a lot of broad noses but... Maybe it was because of that, i mean i also have people telling me that i look like Lauryn Hill. Well I just have to come through there and see it for myself....lol
One Love!!!
He went to Ghanna(sp.) They shot him up good!! Lol..I know I would have to save up. I want to it all when I get there. How about the clubs??? L. Hill? You go girl..:)

no I am not white i am African American. And I've first hand hear West Indians say, well we have a culture and African Americans don't. Like I said I have no problems with West Indians until they say bull shit like that. Thats how it is where iest Indians, Wns think their better than the West Indians, West Indians think they're better than the African Americans and African Americans think they're better than the Africans. It's a stupid cycle that needs to stop because noone is better than the other
