Patricia - sorry to hear that. I hope now that you've got all your bad luck out of the way before you travel.

SBA - I got the same one this morning - then got another one about 30mins ago with two attachments.

Amused that for the number collection point "international" is mis-spelt the way it is pronounced in SA...

PG3 - great to hear things are looking up. (& cool nails!)

Last 2 days of avoiding anyone who coughs or sneezes (and glaring at them with a Paddington Bear "hard stare") - no doubt I' lend up sitting next to a coughing sneezing machine on my flight...

Nearly there!

The lady at the front of the queue asked me if I was still running and when I said 'yes' allowed me to be served ahead of her. I suspect if I had said 'no, I've bailed' she would have made me wait in line...

Also bought an ice lolly off a vendor on the side of the road later on...

It's well worth carrying a banknote or two with you...
