21.03.1999 - 22.03.1999
Up with the rain on this local holiday and set off with Adolf for our morning tour of Soweta. We drove 20 minutes south and viewed mining communes, high and middle class living areas, before walking through the lower class Mandela townships. It was third world structure and amenities, yet crowded locals were reasonably clean and well dressed. Also viewed Winnie's house, Tutu's residence and Nelson's house pre-prison. Interesting tour indeed but not too dissimilar from other slums. Went to airport early and spent R's in bar with ex-pat Kiwi's we met. Long trip ahead, watched three movies, had little sleep. Good to return, yet sad to end our awesome adventures!
