Hi Mike,



Have you thought about buying a camera whilst passing through the duty-free

shop at the airport? Of course it would be a tad difficult to predict

exactly what you would end up with! Check out the exchange rates; would it

be better to buy in S.A.?



Where in S.A. are you off to? My wife is from Joburg and I've been down

there a few times. Now would NOT be a good time to go on a township tour!!!



Regards

Robin

Robin - thanks for the info. Actually I believe the exchange rate for

dollar in SA (as of today) is pretty good these days but things can change.

We're going to Johannesburg and from there Durban, Capetown and other

places. I have heard bad things about the crime rate in Johannesburg - so

no plans to stroll around there.
