Mastercard, not everywhere you want to be

Apparently, Africa doesn't like the Mastercard (thanks a lot Wamu). So here's a tip. Visa is where it's at. If you want to go to Africa, forget the the mastercard at home. Practically worthless, so I hear. I haven't seen an ATM that takes them yet, but hopefully we can find a bank that does. Too bad I didn't bring more cash, but thank goodness I brought some! Hopefully we can figure something out.

Oh, and I bought a pineapple today. I'll let you know how it is.

Yikes oh Yikes. Let me know if I need to send you some money. What a strange thing AND why was this never mentioned by any of the travel information you received????

(This is Kristin--posting on Brooke's thing.)

How was the pineapple? That's crazy about the mastercard. You would think that someone whose been there would have said something. That is such a bummer about the pictures!!! I can't believe we have to wait!

Keep posting--we all love to read about it.

PS. I got on at noon today but didn't see you on gmail. I'll try again tomorrow.
