It’s all sinking in

July 15th, 2004 by MrLuxuryFashionGuru

I now have a sixty-day, single-entry visa to Bangladesh.  My second visit was much less discomfiting than the first.

So by now I’ve sort of processed my South African experience.  I’ve seen at least two very different types of weddings (traditional Hindu and Christian-African) and funerals (African & Christian), birthday parties (Indian girl’s 16th and young Zulu woman’s coming of age ceremony, aged 24), concerts (the Ningizimu school’s farewell concert and the Fete de la Musique at the Alliance Francaise in Durban).  I’ve seen posh suburbs and crumbling townships, bustling cities and remote homesteads, craggy mountains and sweeping beaches, dense plantations and empty scrubland.  I’ve lived with Africans, Indians, Coloureds and White people.  I’ve dined with farmers and statesmen, celebrity athletes and radical activists, social workers and teachers, rich and poor, male and female, young and old.

I’ve seen a lot, heard a lot, and learnt a lot.  Let’s hope I remember a lot too.
