These are Questions about South Africa that were posted on a South African Tourism Website,
they were answered by the website owner.

**STICKY Perhaps Depends whos' reading**
Just found this a good laugh and eye opening aswell - i don't know if the people asking these questions were trying to be funny or sniffing something but hey here you go..

Q: I was in South Africa in 1969, and I want to contact the girl I dated

while I was staying in Hillbrow. Can you help? (USA)

A: Yes, and you will still have to pay her by the hour.

Q: Does it ever get windy in South Africa? I have never seen it rain on TV,

so how do the plants grow? (UK)

A: We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around watching them


Q: Will I be able to see elephants in the street? (USA)

A: Depends how much you've been drinking.

Q: I want to walk from Durban to Cape Town - can I follow the railroad

tracks? (Sweden)

A: Sure, it's only two thousand kilometres. Take lots of water.

Q: Is it safe to run around in the bushes in South Africa? (Sweden)

A: So it's true what they say about Swedes.

Q: Are there any ATMs (cash machines) in South Africa? Can you send me a

list of them in JHB, Cape Town, Knysna and Jeffrey's Bay? (UK)

A: What did your last slave die of?

Q: Can you give me some information about Koala Bear racing in South Africa?


A: Aus-tra-lia is that big island in the middle of the Pacific. A-fri-ca is

the big triangle shaped continent south of Europe which does not... oh

forget it. Sure, the Koala Bear racing is every Tuesday night in Hillbrow.

Come naked.

Q: Which direction is north in South Africa? (USA)

A: Face south and then turn 90 degrees. Contact us when you get there and

we'll send the rest of the directions.

Q: Can I bring cutlery into South Africa? (UK)

A: Why? Just use your fingers like we do.

Q: Can you send me the Vienna Boys' Choir schedule? (USA)

Hillbrow, straight after the Koala Bear races. Come naked.

Q: Do you have perfume in South Africa? (France)

tell me where I can sell it in South Africa? (USA)

Q: Please send a list of all doctors in South Africa who can dispense

rattlesnake serum. USA)

A: Rattlesnakes live in A-meri-ca, which is where YOU come from. All South

African snakes are perfectly harmless, can be safely handled although sometimes

they get aggressive and make good pets.

Q: Will I be able to speek English most places I go? (USA)

A: Yes, but you'll have to learn it first.

(b) Us Aussies hate that saying a Koala Bear

I agree it's amusing, but we do want to try to keep the O & P section a tad bit more focused on music. Just a gentle reminder from one of the local moderators! ;)

My wife came home from work today and told me she'd had a customer who wanted to be checked into his flights to Fiddledelfidia and onto Milky Way. She had difficulty as he only had tickets to Philadelphia and Milwaukee!
She regularly has people who are going to Future-venture (Fuerteventura) and Fookay (Phuket, pronounced poo-ket).

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.
