Diary of a Lost French Student

After the sound of my alarm clock, it is very difficult to get up – but thinking of all the things I will do today, I find the courage to leave my bed. I meet some of my fellow students in the kitchen to have breakfast together. After brushing my teeth, we are finally ready to get down to business. First, we have to go to the office for the morning meeting. We are told what to do for today, but very often the tasks evolve over the...

Arriving at King Shaka International Airport in Durban for the 2013 Indaba we were greeted with a wet welcome. Rain, accompanied by a biting chill, contradicted the legend of Durban's warm weather. This meant that the first day of Indaba on 11 May was a busy one, as the prospect of being indoors was a good one. Taking place at the Durban International Convention Centre (ICC), this year was the 34th Indaba since its inception in 1979...

All Creatures Great and Small

Save the Cheetah

I have not written in a while and when I saw that Balekha wrote about poaching and horn trading, I thought I should tell you more about cheetahs, because we are in trouble too. There are lots of reasons why we are in danger. Here are the four main problems: CompetitionSpaceInterbreedingHumans Humans are number four on my list, but they are the number one danger to us and the reason for numbers two and three. I will explain all the...

A Pirate's Life: Zach McGowan Visits Inverdoorn

The last place you may expect to find a pirate is in the middle of the desert, thus Zach McGowan cuts an interesting figure standing in the Karoo. One of the stars of the hit U.S. television series Shameless, he is currently on location in South Africa filming a new show entitled Black Sails. Set 10 years before the events of Treasure Island, he has been immersing himself in swashbuckling and pirate lore to portray Captain Charles...
