Zapiro characters come to life on Zoopy

by on December 11, 2008 at 5:16 am

I have long been a massive fan of Zapiro’s work. He is subtle and harsh at the same time, can be filled with innuendo or blatant points poking fun at everyone and anyone who he believes deserves a bit of poking. The man is a genius and is recognised widely as such and hated by […]

I need South Africa more than it needs me

by on December 10, 2008 at 11:35 pm

I don’t often take part in chain blog posts, but this one I quite enjoyed and Rafiq tagged me so what else could I do?
To set it straight to start with, I blog about South Africa. South Africa is in Africa and Africa is a moving, culturally rich and incredibly curious continent. So to begin, […]

The Watermark High – a musician that gets it

by on December 9, 2008 at 11:30 pm

Yesterday I actually used social media to discover a new South African band that is putting themselves out there and sticking with the changing times.
The Watermark High started following me on twitter yesterday.
Luckily I was intrigued by the name of the follower and didn’t disregard them as one of the many twammers out there.
Why […]

Peace in Africa – mining diamonds in the ocean

by on December 9, 2008 at 2:19 am

I blogged photos and a more detailed blog post about the Debeers mining ship previously on SA Rocks.
I know have a video from the day up on Zoopy! Here it is, watch and let me know what you think of Peace in Africa, the offshore mining ship. It really was a wonder of technology […]

Soweto: Hector Pieterson, Holiday Inn, Nambisa and Kliptown

by on December 7, 2008 at 11:45 pm

Over the past ten days I cannot express to you effectively the magnitude of incredible things that I have done. But the trend that I seem to have been following on my excursions is to be dumbstruck and in awe of the smaller things, the details that make me African and not the grand gestures […]

DeBeers offshore Diamond Mine: Peace in Africa

by on December 5, 2008 at 3:13 am

It’s a very unusual feeling. Rocking back and forth, back and forth and back again. No land in sight and a boat that has been cut in two and rebuilt with an actual mine in the middle beneath your feet.
The rocking back and forth can be dealt with via a strong stomach and some […]

Cape Town by the sky

by on December 5, 2008 at 3:00 am

I finally managed to string together the video of my trip around Cape Town via the sky.
The helicopter ride (my first) was smooth and absolutely incredible.
I honestly didn’t ever realise how absolutely stunning and unique Cape Town is until this trip. I envy Cape Town folk and honestly don’t even think that they […]

Greenpoint stadium as seen from the Sky

by on December 5, 2008 at 2:41 am

While taking a helicopter flight around Cape Town I noticed the Greenpoint stadium.
It looks incredible. People tell me that there are some issues right now but from where I was sitting it looked magnificent.

3.8Km underground – My experience in the deepest mine in the world

by on December 5, 2008 at 2:26 am

3.8km is a long way whether you look at it vertically, horizontally or any other way you can think of. Now think of going down. Deep down in the pit of the Earth.
TauTona is AngloGold Ashanti’s Mine near Carletonville in Johannesburg. Let me be straight with you here, it’s deep and you don’t really […]
