Thoughts on South African and international politics and culture

The prodigal blogger returns
After an epic trip to Washington and NYC, I've returned to work with a rather large jolt. Doing the political sites of Washington was awesome (including a tour of the capitol), amazing to feel that close to a centre of power, but yet be in what feels like a very relaxed city. The museums are incredible, especially the National Museum of American History and the Holocaust Museum. New York was exceptional as always, and we had a fantastic few weeks there with friends. Even managed a spell in the Hamptons and Newport, where the level of wealth for a South African is simply indescribable.

Normal service to resume shortly.
