I have been bad this week with this blog. Very uninspired. The weather definitely has a lot to do with it – constant rain and dreariness. I will make up for it soon with lots of hopefully interesting commentary and photographs of South Africa. It’s a funny thing about pending vacations; the closer they get, the more desperately you seem to need them. I’m sure it’s all in the mind. One thing I’m not looking forward to is the long trip – Charleston, Detroit, Amsterdam, Cape Town plus a 6 hour time difference. I guess everything comes with a price. Logan gets to be featured today – what a cute dog.
