We visited the Apartheid Museum in Joburg. It chronicled the country's history from the bushmen to colonial occupation, through the oppressive apartheid (segregation) policies put into place following the second World War, and finally establishment of the new constitution in the early 1990s. The museum contained lots of videos, personal accounts and artifacts providing a rich experience of this important era in history.
Next up was a visit to Africa's tallest building, the Top of Africa, which was 50 stories tall. From there, we had views of the World Cup stadium, Ghandi square, Nelson Mandela bridge and other sights in the bustling metropolis of 6 million which is Africa's economic powerhouse.
For the remainder of the evening, we enjoyed dinner and wine at our Protea hotel near the airport. At a price of around $7/bottle and with great selections of Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc from the Western Cape, the wine was flowing quite freely.Read more
