My Brother Just Got Back from Africa

Of course he was pretty excited, the guy is about the luckiest son of a gun in the world I think. He always has been for some reason. He and his girlfriend spent all day showing us the pictures and movies they took in South Africe. They stayed an this Kruger Park lodge accommodation called kwambili safari lodge. I probably spelled that wrong. They took a picture of the sign though and I think that was what it said. Ian has barely got a job though, he works for this girl’s father and his job seems to be to help her blow this guy’s money. It’s tough work obviously. They are already talking about where they are going to go next. They seem to think it has to be some place in the Far East. They were talking about Australia or China.

In truth her Dad is not going to run out of money any time soon. He is some sort of investment banker and he does the sorts of deals where those dot com guys become billionaires overnight after they go public. It is called an Initial Public Offering I think. He is the guy who figures out the mechanics of this stuff and obviously that is a way to make a lot of money. So if is not like I feel bad for the guy. If he wants to spoil that little girl and let my brother live off his largesse, good on him. If I had that sort of money in the bank I would have no clue what to do with all of it, but I would want someone to get some enjoyment out of it. Of course like most people I can not really imagine this type of money, it is not like real money.
