We Didn't Sink

So yesterday, after a wonderful Tuesday evening at the last Book Club for 2007, I was off enjoying our Year-End Team Build.

We headed down to the Vaal River and after doing the usual sort inane "Team Building" type things they make you do, we all boarded the Aquadiziac boat and went Booze Cruising down the river.

It was a good fun day with a fair amount of sun ( it eventually arrived after those nasty looking rain clouds in the morning) and alcohol and good non-work chatter.

Regarding the title of this post, at the same time that we were booze-cruising down the Vaal river yesterday afternoon, another booze cruise boat was sinking on a dam in Pretoria.

Yesterday evening was not as spectacular as Varen had had a different sort of day altogether. Needless to say he wasn't in the best of moods and I just went home to recover and laze in a vat of after-sun cream.

Oh, and I wanted to tell you that I have just found the most brilliant site for South African's wanting to fly. Mom's 50th is coming up early next year and she's changed her mind and decided to celebrate it, which means I'll be needing a weekend flight to Cape Town. So I was browsing around the usual flight sites and found Travel Start. Now usually I find these "scour all the websites and find you the lowest prices" websites a crock of shite, but this one seems to work. I was particularly impressed because they included flight prices from all but our newest carrier and the prices were spot on for what I'd already selected on the individual websites myself. I will definitely be using this as the fastest way to find the cheapest flight in future :)
