sawabona, South Africa

South Africa has 11 official languages (not to mention the unofficial ones), which becomes evident as you travel around the country. It seemed like you could always hear three languages mixed together. I especially loved the subtle clicking language of the Xhosa, and the poetic Zulu greetings, like Sawabona (I see you), yebo (oh, yeah!), and hamba kahle (go gently).
Where do I begin about this trip? Perhaps simply with some photos, and, yebo, there will be many more, and oh so many stories, to come.
