I visited the Red Location Museum in New Brighton Port Elizabeth and I would highly advise everyone to go there sometime not only for the black man's history in this country but also for gaining new perspective and appreciation for life.I set my back to those doors knowing FULLY of where I'm coming from and where I'm going. I held my head high thinking " Black man , you are surely NOT on your own..look how far you've come"

On our way back we stopped at the Nanaga Farmstall, if you havent been there I'd advice you to pop in the next time you make your way to PE. Its famously known for its roosterkoeks and koeksisters but I absolutely loooove the " in middle of nowhere" feel it has and their ginger beer..but its still doesnt beat my mum's!
