From the USA to Botswana

It's only once I started reading blogs that I realised how many USA students visit southern African countries each year (and they seem to like to write about it). Jayne caught a flight from Detroit to Amsterdam, from Amsterdam to Johannesburg (KLM?), where they experienced South Africa's early 2008 power failures in a Backpackers Lodge. The next day they took an eight hour bus trip from Johannesburg to Gaborone (where they stayed in graduate flats at the Univesity of Botswana).

Ryanair hot fares controversial photoRyanair and the UK ASA go to war

After advertising the "Hottest back to school fares", the United Kingdom Advertising Standards Authority commented that the adverts "appeared to link teenage girls with sexually provocative behaviour and was irresponsible and likely to cause serious or widespread offence." Peter Sherrard of Ryanair responded that "It is remarkable that a picture of a fully clothed model is now claimed to cause 'serious or widespread offence', when many of the UK's leading daily newspaper regularly run pictures of topless or partially dressed females without causing any serious or widespread offence. At a time when TV and media advertising is full of suggestive and provocative images, Ryanair believes that there is nothing either irresponsible or offensive in the attached advert."
