I'm absolutely shattered now.
he past I would have said to bring as little as possible. Yes, everything can be bought over here and alot of it fairly cheap. But if you are moving to another country to live, surely bring as much as you can physically carry??
that's it, office clothes that are suitable for a Saffer summer are going to be fine for the LOS. Who'd want to go to the time and expense of replacing them to save a few kilos when you are walking from the baggage carousel to the taxi rank?
also if you happen to be interviewed by a falang DOS you can bribe them with the promise of a glass of wine and a bit of cheese
's a bit of a false economy anyway... yes, some things may be cheaper here (not sure about SA but clothes aren't massively cheaper here though). But when you are fresh off the boat just even finding where to get these things is gonna take time and money. Bring the kitchen sink if you can
Even in BKK I often find it hard to find clothes I like, they are often either too cheap or too poncy.
I've found pizza doesn't pack that well, it's better to do it modularly; a ham, a salami, a tub of mozzarella....
I'm wondering more about South African pizza, Jimmy. There must be a variant.
Droewors pizza? It would taste awesome but I imagine the droewors would be a bit too chewy for a pizza.
I wonder of the Saffers are handy with a pie?
What do they use for fillings? Springbok?
Australian "coat of arms" pies are pretty tasty.
Hang on. I'll get some. From memory, oxtail played a starring role. I bloody love oxtail.
tail but not oxtail
you might struggle to find the ingredients in the LOS but you could use deer and ostrich, Makro carry both.
He put this one up about a month ago. This is the oxtail one. Incidentally - I'm serious. I am not taking the piss. We like pies.
Another South African pie (oxtail again, but a rare label to us collectors.)
I've never seen a coat of arms held up by a can of mushy peas and an oxtail. We must be talking at cross purposes.
