Hi guys. The purpose of this thread is not to show off or brag tongue but to show South Africa in pictures so we can all learn and understand the complexities of the country, its turbulent history and the ongoing struggle for equality. SA is a unique country and continues to fascinate and lure many from our continent to seek opportunities with varying degrees of success.

South Africa have so much influence from the Dutch. It’s obvious in the city and towns layout.
Sad most of its wealthy elites circulate around the whites and Indians.

What's really unfortunate is that apartheid was brutal and excluded the majority of our population from participating in the economy. We just celebrated 27 years of democracy and looking back, much has been achieved but still much to be done by way of economic parity.

Black and SAs now comprise the majority of the middle classes and lifestyles estates are booming to cater to this growing middle and upper class; not the narrative commonly believed and reported.
