There's not too much in Reno except for state and federal government offices.

There's a university and a bunch of casinos. Aren't most of the state government offices in Carson City?

Actually, there is quite a lot to do in Reno. I'm in Vegas and have been to Reno many times. There's also more than state & federal government offices, such as the casinos. In addition, there are other supportive services for those who work in the casinos, such as lawyers, accountants, etc etc. So, depending upon what Shaun had studied at university, he may be onto a internship/apprenticeship in Reno. Pretty far from South Africa, but perhaps something else (or someone else) may be the reason for him to go there. BUT--this is only speculation and just an answer to your comment. And, it may just be a little vacation and nothing to do with a job, etc. Just my own comment or speculation. It is fun to speculate and that's why I love this forum.

Prince Harry's Girlfriend Can't Figure Out The Metro

Chelsy Davy, the girlfriend of Britain's Prince Harry, has been struggling to negotiate the London transport system.
While Harry, 22, is training with his Royals and Blues regiment, his 21-year-old Zimbabwean-born girlfriend and her brother Shaun have been left to explore the capital alone. However, the siblings have had difficulty understanding the complicated London Underground train network.

^She didn't move there did she? Because I know that there were rumors that she was going to move to London but it sounds like from the article that she's just visiting.

As if there wasn't public transport in South Africa!

South Africa doesn't have a transport system, well at least not one that any European traveller would recognise.

The bus systems are few and far between and generally the minibus taxis have taken over. Durban, Jo'burg and Cape Town have bus systems in the city centres but most local towns (like Benoni for instance) don't have public transport. The minibus taxis are privately owned.

The trains are few and far between and while they are trying to set up the "Gautrain" which will be a link between most major cities in Gauteng (the old Transvaal province) we certainly don't have a Metro or Underground system. The majority of people own a car or travel by car.

Basically if you visit South Africa and want to get around safely you will have to hire a car.

Thank you for the information. I didn't realize that South Africa has no real public transport sytsem. anyway, it's not so difficult understanding the tube in London... thus I believe the media made the story up.

Not a problem!

A lot of South Africans manage to figure out the Underground. I have plenty of friends and family who cope quite well and don't even own a car anymore now that they live in London.

I suppose if it is not something you are used to it could be daunting but not impossible.

Bruno press has new pix of Chelsy.

The dress is OK (probably very trendy, but I personally find it a little shapeless), but I really dislike the boots [again, I'm sure they are very trendy but I think they don't go with the dress, look very worn, and are a strange length (something between ankle boots and knee highs)]

HEY KATE, YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN DO TOPSHOP

SHE may be dating a prince, but thrifty Chelsy Davy proves she's got no airs and graces - by choosing a dress from Topshop.

CHELSY RETURNS TO AFRICA AFTER A BUSY WEEK WITH HARRY

After a week spent catching up with long-distance love Prince Harry, Chelsy Davy put on a brave face as she jetted out of Gatwick airport en route for her South African home on Monday.
The 21-year-old met up with her boyfriend of almost three years last Friday night when the fun-loving pair headed out to the exclusive Mayfair bar Mahiki. There, according to onlookers, they were soon deep in conversation while enjoying the bar's extensive range of cocktails. The duo continued their social whirl throughout the week, stepping out to the Cuckoo Club the following evening with Harry's army pals, and capping off Chelsy's ten-day visit with an outing to the popular Embassy club.

I like her look at the airport so so so much more than her look at night time. She looks 100% better.
