I've not yet been to South Africa, though I have a number of friends who are from the place. My colleague from South Africa has her mother in town visiting now, and we've been out for lunch together a couple of times since she's been here. She is a fascinating lady, with many stories to tell about her home country. I have loved getting to know her and hearing about life there. Her insights into tribal life have been especially appealing, generating in me a desire to travel to South Africa. (And the food sounds wonderful!)
I learned from my friend that South Africa is only -- yes, only -- a 10 hour flight from here. That has me even more willing to make the journey. Somehow, I thought it was much further away.
So, there's a new destination on my to-be-seen-soon list.
