About the book:
As an unemployed, poverty-stricken South African in London, Nicole began to pen her thoughts on her two-year experience into her diary. These rambles were to become a weekly column in the South African, the expat newspaper in London, after a chance meeting with the editor, Greg. Greg's job exposed him to lots of useful information such as how to get a fake visa and where to buy blackmarket boerewors. It seemed a shame to confine these insights to history's slosh bucket, so once back home, the two met up again. It was common sense to combine their experiences, put them all on paper and merge their knowledge into Take the Gap - a use-it or lose-it book packed full of advice for those adventurous souls who are considering a stint in London. Or, for those who have been and seen and want to reminisce, a first-class ticket back to the Big Smoke that you grew to love (like a pounding headache after a night down at the pub). This book is not a guide; guides are boring and go out of date. Anxious parents should not read this book!
