Hi Sunny15 and Cartia
Its all easy with your regular credit card from home. They accept it everywhere and unlike home bring the cc machine to you whether it be at the servo or in a restaurant so it's never out of sight. Use your pin again as you would at home. I took out about 4000 rand (approx $350) and that will pretty mch get me cabs, tips, touristy ings, bits and pieces for the 10 days and we've put meals on credit card. it's absolutely the same as it is at home only far cheaper because of the favorable exchange rate.
We had the most amazing winery lunch yesterday with a bottle of champagne, a bottle of white, 2 courses each all for $100 Aussie which is incredible. Today an even better door experience a another winery, 3 courses each and about 8 glasses of wine (today's my last day of drinking!!) all for $80 for the two of us. And the food and service is amongst the best we've ever experienced amywhere in the world.
Anyone who is coming to SA must head out to the wine lands for a truly memorable experience. Stay out at Franschoek and eat and drink while you can!
Update is 14 good embryos all progressing! Transfer on Wednesday then I think I'll head home. Dr says you can fly home straight after so I may just do that.
