Not had chance to process and post anything yet but I have a couple of Soweto pics on my blog now (I will be editing them when I get home as they are SOOC).
Jonathan, thanks for the insightfull blog report. As you say there is great hope still rising in SA but it is still tainted by those who exploit and use violence for their own gains.
Like you we had an organised trip (walking) through the township near Cape Town whose name sadly escapes me now. The organisors were a black company and it was residents that walked us through.
I took no camera to be frank because I did not wish to look like I was intruding even though the places we were taken 'were involved in the "look & learn"...' a couple of American ladies who were with us (total of 5 in the party) stuck their cameras into peoples faces without a thought
However, a different face of that township was in the news a few days later of a Dutch couple who drove their own car up to the area and were very quickly mugged & injured ~ just two faces of the same "story".
Looking forward to your futher reports and images.
