    Just wondering if there are any fellow South Africans on this board! I am from KwaZulu-Natal, Hilton. Presently live in South Carolina and while I love it here I am feeling a bit homesick right now. Been 5 years since I was 'home' last.... sigh....

    I'm not South African but your thread caught me eye. You are far from home-- I feel for your homesickness!

    Thanks Legacyln, you just never know so I thought I would give it a try, after all there are over 7000 members here. It is a small world nowadays with the internet etc... be pretty cool to catch up with a countryman.

    I've always thought South Africa would be a great place to see. The climate and plants and clean cities on the coast seem very fascinating. (And that's coming from someone who isn't even interested in seeing anything in Europe...)

    Hey Godiva!
    I'm not from South Africa but I've been there. My husband worked in Port Elizabeth for 5 months and I got to visit him on holiday for 3 weeks. I think South Africa is the most beautiful place on earth. If I ever run away from home look for me in Knysna! (I hope I spelled that right.) I fact, I'm wearing my 34 Degrees South tee shirt now now!
    Are you in the states permantly?
    I hope some day I'll get to go back. I made a lot of lifelong friends in RSA. I even collect clivia now.

    I believe Mareloo is from South Africa, but I haven't seen him on the board lately.
