Recalling the First Visit to South Africa

May 31, 2007 we arrived. We spent three weeks on a guided tour (thank you Karen and Elaine) travelling South Africa.

Our daughters met us at the airport, rented a car and took us out of Johannesburg

to a couple of B&B's in the country, then to Kruger Park, and other places whose names I have forgotten (although I have a diary somewhere with all the details) and eventually to Cape Town.

Here is the famous District 6 Museum. It was very moving to read all the personal stories of those who had settled and built a community there, before the government shipped them off to townships hoping to keep that area exclusive for whites. The plan failed because the whites did not arrive.
