5 Surprising Things About South Africa

We spent three weeks in South Africa in late August and early September. The experience that was one has varies by what you bring into the situation. As a Black person living in America I was excited to be returning to the continent of my ancestors and excited to meet some South Africans. Due to some of the blog posts I read, I was a little worried about crime (car jackings) and people trying to take advantage of us. Thankfully, we didn’t have any problems in any of the three major cities (Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban) that we visited.
