Bridge at Unisa

The World > Africa > South Africa > Pretoria

This is a neat little bridge over the main road near Unisa, just down from Fountains Circle. A tricky pano to stitch, with a lot of railings and stay wires to join up. The large building up on the hill is the Unisa University. Telkom's telecommunication tower can be seen to the left of this. The sun is going down behind the Freedom Park hill and if you look carefully, you will see the moon on the opposite side, rising to the East of the buildings of downtown Pretoria.

Questa è una vista generale di 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.
