Proudly African

I am proud to be African, celebrating African day with the my friends from Africa.

I was born in Africa, and I live in Africa. Africa is a fascinating place to live. Where else do you have so many languages, interesting foods, brilliant music and amazing culture? Yes Africa has her problems, poverty, crime and corruption being at the top of the list. But it is a REAL place to live. You are alive when you live in Africa.

Here are some pictures taken of Africans, in Africa.

African statue

This lovely yet somewhat strange statue was in the garden of the conference venue where we had our recent Toastmasters conference, in Vanderbijlpark just South of Johannesburg. While this type of status is very typical of African art, I still find such large and lifelike statues somewhat intimidating, almost as if they are watching your every move. Having said that, the detail is amazing, and it is a true craftsman that can carve this face out of a solid piece of wood.

Bu the way, no HDR here in case you were wondering.
