South Africa - Johannesberg

Dedicated to Humanity

OK, I go ahead and dedicate a five-mintue post on a tragic internet conection to something as overwhelming as That. Too bad - this is all I can muster, and it may be all you'll here for some time.

First, All's Good Here!!! Totally safe. Hostel surrounded by razorwire tumbled beneath scenic garden, huge walls everywhere, but feels like Yarralumla aside from that. Toured Soweto shantytowns and the Apartheid museum so far, fantastic places, need a bigger post to do them justice. Have met the ten people I'll be trucking with to Nairobi over the next month, quite a good mix of nations, all twenty-something. Look like it's be awesome.

Must go - don't hold your breath for the next post!
