As absolutely incredible as South Africa is as a destination, this country has a dark past that cannot, and should not be ignored. Even though it has been almost 25yrs since the apartheid system ended in South Africa, the remains of such a deeply entrenched racial system (now doesn’t that sound disturbingly familiar) are still evident today.
Townships (the segregated urban areas set aside for all who were non-white during the time of apartheid) make for a stark contrast to the cities surrounding them. Their shimmering silver tin roofs can be spotted instantly as you crest a hill, and as you draw closer it is evident that these towns are self-sufficient hubs for those who were so harshly and extremely set aside, and who now struggle to find steady work and incomes to support their lives.
As these pictures show [swipe right] townships are bristling with life as we know it: homes, schools, shops, barbers and braais (barbecues). Even a few minutes spent interacting with local people reminds us to avoid the temptation to stereotype those who live here, in the way apartheid intended. Instead we choose to follow our curiosity and celebrate the lifeblood of these communities, remembering to never let the same happen again. #ifollowmycuriosity
For those that check my stories, it’s no secret that I’m currently flapping about after chipping my tooth on a BLT gravelwich last night. So, whilst I wait for my dentist appointment, I figured I’d rewind with a post of my recent trip Saint Emilion. A time and place where my only concerns were what wine I should buy, what cheese I should eat and how long it would take until three old ladies would wrap up their chat and get out of shot.

You can enjoy a wide panoramic view of the #Grandcanyon in #Arizona from the historic Desert View Watchtower, a tower that was built around 1930 by architect Mary Colter as a tribute to the watchtowers built by the Anasazi natives who once lived in that area. The show of the stars then is incredible.
I had this experience thanks to @herorentacar

Do you know that the origins of the shophouses were from Guangdong and Fujian provinces in China? These were built with symmetry and orientation in mind as the ancient Chinese belief of universal balance 👌i should have learned Feng Shui and become an interior designer or architect 😂😉
Happy Friday guys! 👌
The sweet entrance @slaughtersmanor, where they couldn’t have been nicer about our lumpy macs (maps, oatie biscuits, etc) and caked boots. We had taken a walk that morning and come for sherries and lunch. To read more of the story in @voguemagazine, the link is in profile.
