When my daughter sent this awesome photo of my grandson, while on their Carribean cruise, I had to blanche at the cost of the photo having mentally converted dollars to our South African currency - say, about the cost of a 3-course meal for two in a reasonable restaurant, with a bottle of wine. The actual cost of swimming with the dolphin's was - let's say - two week's rent, if you were sharing a small, two-bed apartment. Still, she said the experience was priceless, as was their visit to Lego-world in Dubai on their way home, not to mention their whole, marvelous holiday. As we speak, I think they are in the air somewhere... Meanwhile, lovely surprise - small son came home two days ago, having "got tired of Thailand" (read - run out of cash) after two and a half weeks. He did most of what he had intended though: hiked around, stayed in hostels, washed baby elephants, met a lot of nice people, and did island-hopping and snorkelling.
