This is an insightful, artistic glimpse into the lives of the regular folk here. It is interesting to me how there seems to be a lack of negativity, even in the face of such poverty. People still manage to smile.


"...a lack of negativity." For sure. Most people are concerned about getting on with their lives.

But, I have to admit, that in the townships there's also frustration and sometimes anger at the government's inability to address many of the injustices of the past. This is especially true where jobs, education, and public services, such as sanitation, are concerned.

There will be bumps in the road ahead, but, on the whole, I'm optimistic about South Africa.

Thanks much for the comment.
