TR Robertson — These are a couple of pictures from Africa. The stadium is the soccer stadium in Capetown used for some of the 2010 World matches, holds about 67,000 people. The animals were in a private game reserve called Botlierskop. We are off to a Zulu Cultural Center tomorrow. Heard an interesting presentation on board ship from a gentleman who knew and worked with Nelson Mandela. Will be writing some articles about the trip for TheVistaPress.com with more pictures.
Trip into Zululand country interesting. Predominately an all black section of South Africa. The people here recognize themselves more as Zulu than South African. Out guide was very nice. We were about 53 miles from the large port of Richard’s Bay. Many of the people still live in the traditional beehive huts, many of the huts now have electricity run to them. In the Cultural Center, the huts are built in the traditional reed and brush manner. The dancing was done primarily by the men, mostly percussion based. We had a great lunch at the center. There are a number of KFC’s here and quite popular. McDonald’s just arrived.
