Quote of the week

It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. The more I become aware of, the more I realize how relatively little I know of it, how many places I have still to go, how much more there is to learn.

Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel — leaves marks on you.

The journey is part of the experience — an expression of the seriousness of one’s intent. One doesn’t take the A train to Mecca.

Better than houses in Joe Slovo?

The Abahlali baseMjondolo (Shack Dwellers) Movement website contains a picture (below) of the site where Joe Slovo residents will be moved if their appeal against the eviction order by Judge President John Hlophe is unsuccessful. The Court accepted that this accommodation was far better than the existing accommodation in Joe Slovo. Must say, it looks rather cosy….

Maybe there is a reason why the inhabitants of Joe Slovo (pictures below) would not want to me moved 15 km further away to a souless dump from town to a place not accessible by train and hence much more difficult and expensive to travel to and from.
