Mama Africa

Just got back from the mother rock. A couple of posts on fascinating South Africa coming soon.

Some takes from my time with daughter Rebecca in Cape Town:

Your pictures are wonderful. Being at The Cape of Good Hope makes me think of all the ships of the past that rounded that point on their way to explore new lands. Cape Town is a beautiful city. I look forward to future blogs about South Africa. It is great that you got to visit Rebecca.

The "Mama Africa" title reminds me of when I went to Kenya, as a missions trip that was being sent from a an upper middle-class suburban African-American church. The pastor, who was so obese that he was literally wider than he was tall, benedicted us, teary eyed, with the words "Say hello to thah muthahland fuh me."

I heard Mama Africa in the refrain of a Nigerian hip hop song and it's stuck with me ever since. Always good to spend time in thah muthahland...
