Expectation vs. Reality

So I’m officially going with Adam to South Africa for a ten-day vacation! I had to do mad research though, because 1.) I’m not used to backwards, south-of-the-equator shit, 2.) I’m traveling alone and don’t know my way around any African airports, and 3.) I like to mentally prep myself before I venture into new territories.

Now, for those of you who are either mentally retarded or live under a rock or, I dunno, smoke a lot of crack or something, South Africa is a country in the south of… wait for it… Africa! Pretty nifty, huh? Did you see how they did that with the name? Anyway, it’s pretty much as south as you can go. Summer is in December, the left side of the road is the right side (bonus points for play on words!), and water swirls the opposite direction when you flush a toilet.

You know those HSBC ads that are totally ambiguous and awesome?

Yeah, that’s how I feel about South Africa. I’m confused between expectations and reality. Therefore, I have decided to display a series of images and let you decide which is which. Or, if you can’t be bothered to think, I’ll just tell you about it after my trip. If I make it out alive, that is.
