Here are a few shots from a trip last week to Soweto, South Africa for an article my other half is writing. There are some more on my blog here (external link).

1. Graffiti in Freedom Square (formally known as "The Walter Sisulu Square of Dedication")

Awesome photos. The smile on the little girl's face in the 3rd to last photo is too cute!
