Are you a Trevor Noah fan. His show "It's my Culture" is on at Montecasino every night from the 30th September to the 20th October 2013. If you want to fly from Cape Town, we had a look at prices on the 11th October - Mango offered the cheapest flights and Shosholoza Meyl was the cheapest overland option.

Yesterday, we asked if anybody wanted to go to Kabul on a holiday (Emirates is starting flying there). We received the following answer: On my way to Kabul I was dropped off in a small airport, my passport was taken from me & I got to stay at the airport the whole night & there is no restaurant there. Had to sit up during the night, no place to sleep. The next morning I boarded a small plane to Kabul. Once we arrived in Kabul I was in shock. The place was stinking because the toilet just runs in the street of every place. My friend was another person once we were there. I was not allowed to go outside on my own & when I did go outside I had to cover my whole body in a black cloak & was told not to speak or else I would be kidnapped. It was hell. Flies everywhere. Even the restaurants were very dirty. I could not wait to get out of there! I had to pay double airport tax else i would not have been allowed in the so called airport. I dont advise anyone to go there. They only take US Dollars there. Patricia
