Christopher Elliott: Take along backup credit card on trips

When my flight from Lusaka arrived in Johannesburg, I was forced to buy a new ticket to continue on to Cape Town. This was required because I could not provide the credit card I used to purchase the original ticket, which South African Airlines uses for identification. (I always travel with a different card, which has no fee on international transactions.)
