The amazing adventure of a 1999 Toyota Hilux Surf

Our spiffy new Toyota Hilux Surf is resting snug aboard the MV Sanderling Ace. It left Nagoya, Japan on January 22 and is currently here.

If our car's journey to Lusaka follows along the lines of the tales I've been told, it will generally take longer and cost more to get the car from Durban, South Africa to Lusaka than from Japan to South Africa.

Doesn't seem right, but there you go.

We are waiting expectantly for the new addition to our family, mostly because it will mean Katherine will need to be less of a cab driver than she is currently being.
