Does anybody know if dairy is indeed a problem? Must have some cream for the Bos's coffee...


In all my travels and crossing of nabouring borders I have only once been searched and it was just a quick brows. So in a big car like a Patrol, i am sure you wil find a hide out for the Bos's cream. They generly dont have isseus with sealed and processed products on the borders. Its mostly open and fresh foods.

And im sure you will find her brand in swaziland. Its like a smaller SA. Only diffs is. The people are more friendly. :mytwocents:

Josh, the problem is I will only be arriving late on Friday night, and it seems like we won't have much time to shop on Saturday or Sunday.
I guess I'll just have to smuggle...

Lucky you.

I've not had any feedback. And have not had a chance for the wife and me to stop by in person to chase things up. Sorry - I am going to have to cancel this one. No passports for kids (yet). Still missing one unabridged birth certificate. :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown:

Wife and I are going together on Wednesday afternoon, to get the blooming letter, and then to re-apply by redpoin the original birth registration thing.
It would be funny (in a perverse sort of way) if they do not ask for it at the border.
