This is the end of my first full day in South Africa - and to say I am crazy overwhelmed with all I have experienced so far would be an understatement.
- They had concentration camps here in the early 1900's!! - started by the British!!
- KFC is everywhere here, McDonalds is here, but is not popular.
- Starbucks came in for the 2010 Olympics, but left immediately afterwards.
- In 1976, a group of children (!) revolted against the governments order that they learn a certain language affiliated with apartheid and 15,000 of them took to the streets for a peaceful protest and were very successful...until an executive order came down from some government official to OPEN FIRE on the crowd-OF CHILDREN. Hundreds died, mostly children.
