Solo travellers should not be considered unsociable, they are expressing their independence until they choose to do otherwise.

What's the advantage of having the software upgraded ?

Ek dink ek is al deur 'n paar onderbroeke in die afgelope jaar.



Ten minste glo ek nie jou probleem is 'n foutiewe onderdeel nie, net 'n dodgy kontak. As dit weer voorkom hoort jy dit weer uit te sort.

Sell it to me cheap-cheap and buy a KLR.
