KwaZulu Natal – Day 2

28 Apr

On our first full day here we woke to Nyala prancing about outside our window, spent the morning being immersed in the Zulu culture with a fabulous guide who took us first to a Primary School (where the 41 children in one class sang and danced for us. We were asked if we would sing or dance for the children. I sang Skinny Marinka for them and got a round of applause. D danced and was similarly rewarded!).  ) Thence we went to a village where we learned a great deal of fascinating information about the local way of life and their customs.

South Africa’s National Anthem which I sang along with, having learned it many years ago with The Quirky Choir

In the Zulu village

The afternoon was a long walk through the woods and alongside the water at False Bay, quite a challenge!12,500 steps on my counter, 24.000 on someone else’s!
