  1. Thank you for yet again introducing some thought-provoking articles. They reflect so many people and themes that haunted me the 7 months we were there…. A friend emailed me yesterday saying, “Don’t you wish you were still in SA? How fascinating it would be to be there during the funeral!” All I could think was, “But it’s so much more complicated than that.” These articles frame a few of the issues eloquently.


    • Thanks for the comment, Bobbi. It is definitely interesting and tragic how the situation within South Africa is compared with its Rainbow Nation world image. I mean, a lot of it is true in terms of the diversity and culture, but there’s a lot of negativity and anger. I like the country a lot, but as you say, it is very complicated.
