Interesting place in the middle of nowhere
South Africa
On the N3 about 300KM out of Johannesburg and about 300KM to Durban you will find Makiti, an interesting place in the middle of nowhere. The building first reminded me of something out of the American South West, maybe New Mexico and it was a nice change from the cows and fields that had made up the scenery since leaving Johannesburg. They have a small restaurant and sell handie crafts such as leather goods, paintings, and carvings. If you are coming from Joburg and are looking for a place to eat keep going, the food was only OK and you will come to more selection in about 50 - 75KM. If you are coming from Durban and looking for something to eat, turn around and go back 50 - 75KM there is nothing past this until you are in Joburg. If you are just looking for a place to take a rest, then this is not a bad place.

More About Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
