South America sounds similar to South Africa, right? So, many people seem to think that they are more or less the same size as well. (I know the one is a continent and the other is a country but I must say I hadn’t given it too much thought before either.)
I phoned our medical aid lady today to tell her about our plans to go to South America soon. She asked: “Where in South America?” “Peru, Bolivia, Argentina and Brazil.” I replied. She responded with “O, nice, all the cities in South America!”…. They are not cities! Each name I mentioned is a freakin’ country! I don’t blame her or anything. It also made me realize again that South America is really big. If you have a look at the map….. we are planning to do a whole lot of traveling. It takes 12 hours to drive from P.E to Joburg!
