Our flights are booked for the 20th September, so we’ll be arriving in Cape Town on the 21st.

Before that we have to get our visas sorted out, which means getting:

  • A doctors letter attesting to our general good health
  • A chest x-ray and radiological report (to prove we don’t have TB)
  • A Police Clearance Certificate
  • Passport photographs

I’m not entirely sure why we need to prove we’re TB free when South Africa has such a high incidence of TB, but maybe it has something to do with resistant strains.

Blackberry Update: Earlier this week, we made an appeal for any Blackberry phones that you might not want. We’ve had one donation so far (thankyou!), so we’re just asking for one more.
