Day 85


Love your country.  Your country is the land where your parents sleep, where is spoken that language in which the chosen of your heart, blushing, whispered the first word of love; it is the home that God has given you that by striving to perfect yourselves therein you may prepare to ascend to him.  ~ Giuseppe Mazzini

It’s 5: 58 PM on day85 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself  Oats  for  breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for most of the day – I don’t know how Non-Profit Organization do this on a daily bases –when I started this I  thought all I would have to do is set up my Firstgiving page and tell people about it and they would donate boy was I WRONG LOL :)–   feed myself  curry and rice for lunch and exercise for 10 minutes –  today was a GREAT day I barely felt any pain or discomfort 🙂

When people think South Africa they think Nelson Mandela, Table Top Mountain, Robbin Island all of which are an integral part of South Africa as a whole but there is more to South Africa then our many Nobel laureates and World Heritage Sites we have:

  • A variety of wildlife (which contrary to popular belief do not roam around free in the streets but rather are in zoos or national parks)
  • Beautiful beaches
  • Good food
  • The finest wine
  • Great music (see videos below)
  • Wonderful movies (Tsotsi won an Academy Award for  Best Foreign Language Film of the Year in 2006)
