On My African Journey – South Africa

23 Dec

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!
