Here are couple of pictures that we took after we unpacked our suitcases. These were the things on my parents shopping list. The things they needed from America.
Photo #1 shows - cinnamon gummy bears, non-perils, rootbeer barrels, zantac, motrin, tylenol, sweat proof sunscreen, crosheen, beads and socks for making cute little bead socks - you know - real important stuff.
Photo #2, 6 one and half pound bags of chocolate chips (a necessity in life), brown sugar, mapleine flavoring, hershey kisses, and the last 3 books in a series my mom was reading - hardback of course.
Photo #3 - A years supply of Avon creams and lots and lots of Leggs brand panty hose. Apparently South Africa does not make a decent pair of hose so import you must.
I was happy I was able to bring them things that brought comfort and familiarity. I was also happy I had all that extra room in my suitcase so I could bring home lots of cool souvenirs.
