Freedom Day in the most beautiful country in the world

Freedom Day today - a public holiday to remember the miracle of our first free democratic election in 1994. Today on Fish Hoek beach there were some members of one of the African Independent Churches who are also known as African Zionists, nothing to do with the Zion movement of Israel but because they are descendants of the congregation of a group of pentecostal missionaries from Zion in Illinois, USA who came out in the late 1800s and early 1900s to South Africa. They have beautiful flowing, almost Ethiopian looking robes and transformed the scene into something wonderfully exotic. Who could not love this country?


  1. Amen to your last comment/question, Caroline. I love South Africa. Greetings, Jo

  2. That must have been beautiful and moving.
