Today we are going to South Africa (SA). I have been hesitant to make this trek, even as I have known since before arriving in Botswana that I would. The image of SA has not been a positive one in my mind since the mid-seventies when I learned about apartheid. So now my feelings are a mix of anticipation and trepidation.
I have heard as many wonderful things about South Africa as I have read horror stories. Obviously the negative things I have heard were not enough to keep me from experiencing SA for myself. So, as we drive out of Gaborone further away than we have ever been before, I am excited about this new adventure complete with new strange sounding names. More to come!
