God Bless South Africa…For me, South Africa is one of the most beautiful nations in the world….friendly and amazing people, beautiful cities (Pretoria, Johannesbourg, Cape Town)…South African democracy is one of the best in the Third World…birthplace of Nelson Mandela, Charlize Theron, Penny Heys (swimmer/ Olympic gold medalist, 1996), Nadime Gordimer (Nobel Prize for Literature)…Kruger National Park is one of the wonders of the world…( I love “Africa”…maybe because I have African origin…)
