Thanksgiving Woes

Thanksgiving is only a couple weeks away and here I sit wishing I had that Thursday and Friday off so that I could stuff my face and catch up with my extended family.  Unfortunately, this is not going to happen with the current prices of airfare from Cape Town to Los Angeles.

There will be no football playing in the background, my Grandma and Uncle trying to interrogate me about everything in my life or my Sister, Mom and I in the kitchen preparing all the food.  It makes me a bit sad I must say, especially since it is the second year in a row.

Even if I wanted to create a makeshift Thanksgiving no one here quite understands the day and the closest thing I can find to turkey is an ostrich.

What I wouldn’t do for a pumpkin pie and whipped cream.
