Emergency Trip to Brighton?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,329 The Mix Honorary Guru
We got a call today saying my cousin is flying from Kenya to Heathrow on Saturday so we have to pick him up and then drop the guy the next day at Uni of Sussex, which all I know is somewhere in Brighton.

Lessons starts Monday...

So far that's all we know and all he knows .. took him forever to find a place in a medical course and this is only for 1 year!!

They've told him he's got accomodation on campus but that's all we know ..

Anybody know anything about the area or the uni?

I can't imagine this guy being left on his own, he came for a visit a few months ago and I had to teach him how to iron a shirt!!

    He doesn't even shave yet, he's got load of peach fuzz on his face but he's resisted shaving to prevent increase in acne ...

    Which I have to say I did find the day I first shaved it started off the acne for me!!

    Actually it's just occrued to me we'll have to take my cousin food shopping and buy him milk, bread and enough food to keep him going for at least a week.

    He can't drive either... any idea what roads are like in the area for cycle owners? .... maybe we can buy him a cycle .. I'm sure someone posted a link to cheap bikes online that come from the catalouge companies that don't sell them all at Xmas.

    Damn I would minded have going up on SAturday night and going clubbing in Brighton .. LOL .. but reckonmy parents would come as well to drop him off!!

    Just raided our cupboards for food for my cousin, amazing how many tins of soups and pasta things that only require hot water we had .. that should keep him going for a long time until he starts to learn how to cook.

    Yeah, he flipping emailing stupid questions about buying stuff for his dad's camera shop in Kenya rather then being concerned about going to uni ...
