We are happy to share an update from Team Australia members experience on Day Six of the 2016 Community Plumbing Challenge:
Day 6 was an opportunity for the teams to take in the rich history and culture that South Africa has to offer.
“Day 6 was an opportunity for the teams to take in the rich history and culture that South Africa has to offer. The organisers gave the teams the day off from work, as a field trip had been organised to visit a few of the local sites.
First we headed to the Apartheid Museum and what an experience that was. To learn of the struggles that some people had to go through just to live a normal life – it was very touching.
Next we were off to Vilkazi St in Orlando, which is famous as it is the only Street to have housed two Nobel peace prize winners, Former President Nelson Mandala and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Then went to a traditional African ‘chisa nyma’ restaurant for lunch. This consisted of many lovely traditional foods some being chicken feet and mopani worms. Finally we went to Nelson Mandala’s house in Soweto which was a great little tourist street also to buy some trinkets.’
