Packed and ready? Ask me Sunday at noon (CET)!

Currently it's real stress. Suddenly all my colleagues and project leads remember all those things that are sooooooo important and can't wait another four weeks. Not to mention the private shoppings I have to do till Saturday. I really hate this last week before a safari, it's always the same.

And I'm still waiting for a confirmation for this private vehicle from this B******* Company in Zambia - they were really great and responded immediately and offered me a fantastic rebate for this vehicle BEFORE I booked into their camp, but NOW it appears to me that their email connection has become much worse over the last weeks and that they have encountered some kind of amnesia.

Have a fantastic time! We will miss you. Funny how you and Rocco are never seen together at the same time. I'm beginning to thing you're the same person.

And then there's that mysterious aardvark...

D'oh. I meant "think you're the same person."

Have fun!

...or some Amarula.

I just had a nice Niederegger session with my colleagues, that helps a lot. Btw, Niederegger and Amarula must be a great combination - I will try it out these evening.

Mitch

PS: In case you don't know Niederegger, it's from the same area where I live. Have a look at

(the English version link is below the big picture)

Leely,

I've never done marathons - so I can't be HIM.

Matt, BEFORE Zambia.
After the safari I'm by far too relaxed...

63 hours and counting...

...and I'm going crazy because of this BU****** COMPANY!

Four days after my first enquiry - and they are not able to answer these simple questions:
1. Is there a private vehicle at Bili Camp available on Oct 2 and 3?
2. Is the rate they offered me in May still valid?
3. Do they prefer cash at the camp, or credit card now?
4. Should my agent handle this, or should I?

Yesterday I told them that today is my last chance for getting $$ in cash at my bank. Now I'm told that I should discuss this matter with Andy when I'm in Mfuwe. Sorry? Andy? Mfuwe? Mfuwe Lodge? My current itinerary includes a direct road transfer from Mfuwe Airport to Bili Camp - and I don't want to change this.

Is my English so lousy that they don't understand those simple questions? Are they not able to say a simple NO, or a simple YES and some numbers??

AAAARRRRRRRGGGGUUUUUUAAAAHHHHH........

Holy Father, give me some Rocco genes.

Mitch
