South Africa's Nine Provinces

      1. Cities I Visited

2. Sites I Saw:
27 April: Freedom Day
This was the day in 1994 when the first democratic election was held in South Africa, ie an election when all adults could vote irrespective of their race, and the day in 1997 when the new constitution took effect.
       3. Living Conditions
       4. Scenery
       5. The People    (My apologies to the many people I met whose photo I didn't get!)
The Indigenous South Africans I encountered are amongst the friendliest, most gracious people I have ever had the privilege to meet.
