I’ve considered blogging about Soccer City before buts it’s a difficult location to blog about. You can’t just go there on a random Tuesday afternoon and hope to feel the same vibe.

This week saw the launch of the first independent space craft that docked with the International Space Station. The Dragon spaceship and the SpaceX Company are the […]Read more "Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens: Hiking to the top of Mount Doom"
