Why are we westerners making such a issue over a religious figure. One who belives in reincarnation and predestination. I mean, he has seen it all before.

I bet that he is having a quiet giggle to himself.
I also bet that the brouhaha has nothing to do with the way his visa application was dealt with or with the China syndrome (I bet that they, China, are also having a quiet giggle to themselves watching us westerners get all hot under the coller with each other.)
I will put my money on the fact that it has mostly to do with going against anything the SA government and or the ruling party says or does; just becouse we can. Government bashing is afterall the flavour of the day.
I bet that the media machine are enjoying all the hive of activity behind this controversy; lots of money is being made.

Then again, I have never been a good gambler. But maybe, just maybe, this time my money is safe.

People amaze me. I can sit in public places for hours and just observe those around me. The way they walk, talk, dress. I like to go to the any place that serves a decent coffee and just... watch. And listen. To those coming and going, to the converstations all around me.

We like animals, especially puppies and kittens, so going to a pet shop usually pops up in our weekend activities. Pet shops are mostly located at malls, so we spend some time over the weekends just strolling around any one of the many malls in the vicinity. Lots and lots of people in malls.

DO you know what makes me proud, especially these past couple of weeks?
