By Linda Scott Smith If ever there is a good time to be sporting bloodshot eyes thanks to medication side effects, it would be when you leave your homeland. The preceding weeks consisted of packing, cleaning, sorting and selling. As the pressure built of the move, not the eyes , aided by the paint fumes from some last. So, to the doctor we went and soon returned with oodles of cortisone. Initially it boosted all energy levels so that Speedy Gonzalez would have struggled to keep up, but as it started petering out, the pressure converted to the eyeballs and… Voila!
Welcome red eyes! Not only were the peepers tinted, but also dry and convincingly close to the point of popping. Each morning was spent prying them open slowly.
The eyelids were also pretty puffy — if those two. Then there was the matter of the podgy fingers. No ring could fit those little sausages, yet again the result of cortisone as opposed to the hours of scrubbing and polishing floors not food.

This would be the first proper cut and blow in years and the strange little bleached hairdresser promises to only lop off a few centimetres. Taking advantage of the closed eyes, she seems to be sending a lot of locks floor wards.

South Africa is more like a huge, gaudy amusement park where nobody has checked the safely standards of the equipment in a long time. But, damn that ride is fun. And it seems to go on forever. And everyone is smiling as they go around and around, and life is uncontained and openended and there are no barriers and the possibilities are endless. And I can understand why people choose the manicured garden.

But the amusement park has a wildness which can be quite irresistible. Because you might fall off, but you also might not, and in the interim you are having such a damn good time.
