What do you love about being a South African?
South Africa will always be in my blood and the thing I love the most is camping in the wild and listening to the sounds of animals and insects fill the air with noises that could only possibly come from Africa whilst gazing at the Milky Way (my eyes glaze over even whilst writing this). My biggest wish is that SA will heal and that nobody will ever see colour again.

As Madiba said:  “No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
