@hague: So you are partyly SA? You live in Poland?
I am Polish, but my parents and I moved to SA in 1992 and we left for Auss in 2001. we spent most of our time in the north of the country Transvall and the Free State or the Vraystaat. We met some really warmhearted individuals and would probably have never left if security, economics and the political situation were more stable. My dad lived in Zim for a bit and I lived in Botswana for a bit as well. My dad was usually contracted with De Beers and Anglo American as a GP.
One thing i will never forget about SA is Biltong- I absolutely looooove it(:
I really hope you stick it out in Poland but I am sure like me, you must miss SA a lot. There is something about that part of Africa that brings out this primal attachment in individuals, that few other places can match. In the African night, even though far away from the rest of the world in some ways, I feel very close and content at the same time. I do not feel the same way about Auss.
Another thing that triggers memories of SA is the smell of that anti Mosquito smear on. I have grown accustomed to that smell(:
Starting out a Biltong franchise could be a great idea!(:
