I just made it into South Africa, the land of Mandela, and the most hopeful of the hopefuls, south of Sahara. I was here six times last year, and beginning the African voyage with it. It has energy despite the paralyses it confronts.
As my friends joke here “I hope one day I will visit Africa”. I smile because for most, they do not think they are in sub-Saharan Africa (infrastructure wise depending on where you live) because if someone blindfolds and drops you in downtown Cape Town, you may think you are in San Francisco!
Nigeria has work to do – South African infrastructure excites.
