So many pictures. So much beauty. Let’s travel the trails of the fabulous South Africa, a country not without it’s scars. Here people cling to hertitage and homelands with a devoted passion. Why? Because it’s absolutely worth it! there are so many stories behind the camera lens.
Be it your memories that take you there, South African Airways, or you already walk on the well trodden soil; there are always mixed emotions about this beautiful place. Speaking and remembering from afar could be called, Lasting Loyalty; but am I loyal?
I am not there to see some of the sad and cruel changes that have affected people. You may say, easy to block from my mind? No, but then again, I never watch scary movies or horror films. Some have walked away Loathing the past and what they have witnessed.
And in my past we had this!
I write from my experiences, when I Lived and Loved my Life in South Africa. Can you blame me for that? Our Zulu friends in Natal are still vowing to keep their race pure. You can’t blame them, they don’t want to mix and King Goodwell Zwelithini recently tested 200 of their women for purity.
We can change how trains run; and the way we employ people to get the job done; the way we communicate in these worldly ways; the flag we fly; but inside our heads we are the same. Our hearts are in the same place. You can’t change who you are.
We all have to eat, have a place to live and hopefully some good memories to get by on a bad day. It was a bad day for our leopard friend, here but he had to eat! More on porcupines. Love it!
But it’s not all doom and gloom and loathing. It seems a South African film, Zulu, set in Cape Town, starring two cops, closed the Cannes Film festival in May 2013.
And it seems Jacob Zumu, the president, has received a medal for bravery? Any suggestions why?
