We spent two plus weeks in the amazing country, starting in Johannesburg - often called Joburg and Jozi - on November 22nd by visiting the city's Apartheid Museum, located strangely enough in the Gold Reef City Casino Theme Park of all places. From the first step into the museum, we were made starkly aware of the harshness of apartheid when our tickets arbitrarily identified us as white and non-white and we therefore had to enter through different turnstiles. We were startled by the designation, but it put us in the mindset to learn more about apartheid.
The natural follow-up for us was a private guided tour of the vast township of Soweto, an acronym for South West Townships, where the student anti-apartheid uprisings began.
