KwaZulu Natal – Day 7

02 May

30th April

Today was a tour of the Zulu battlefields which I thought I would have no interest in but I was mistaken. Having the battles described on site at Isandlwana (where the British were beaten and massacred) and Rorke’s Drift (where they won the battle and many Zulus died) made it all come alive and emphasised the terrible futility of war.

    True. No one, to my knowledge has ever died from good will and benevolence. But violence hangs in there; a testosterone thing I think in any country
