    Assignment - South Africa:  Down on the cape


    In August of 2010,  I visited this Zulu Village in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa (near Durban).


    We were greeted with warm, welcoming smiles, treated to a tour of their village, sampled homemade Zulu beer and given demonstrations of their way of lilving. Then, we got to enjoy some lively traditional Zulu dancing and a wonderful authentic Zulu dinner.


    It was a great day and one I will never forget.
