Back on the Job

Wow it's only been two weeks that I've been back in SA and boy have I been rushing round. I managed to squeeze in a trip to Cape Town before starting work, and Cape Town rocks!

The job is more than interesting, it's also a rich source of new material. As I mentioned I want to take the blog into a new direction, but still retain the elemental focus of how to win a revolution and lose the plot.

Less French, more global, from a South African perspective though. When I get some more time I'll be able to fill in the gaps, but in the meantime read up on one of SA's more notorious gangsters:

So who is Stander anyway

OK Now.

Mayibuye iAfrika

The title of this post means "Return to Africa".

It is something I have done, and it is something that you must do too.

I have done that. After 5 years of living in europe I have returned to Africa, my home.

For me it is about change - I've left France to it's own devices and have begun picking up the threads of my life in Africa.

Not that I ever left Africa, it is just that I have been away for while. It is good to be back though, because everyone here has been getting along just fine, and I have not been missed... ok, I have been been missed, but what I mean to say is that things are rockin' here and through no fault of my own.

I left my home for the love of someone else, but now I have returned, and through this I have learnt many things, most important of which is summed up in the bumper sticker; Eat, drink and remarry!

Ha! OK That's just a joke - although I did actually see that sticker once - nevertheless, there is a lot to be done, and this here blog will be adapting over the next few months to take into account some upcoming radical changes... stay tuned!
