we went as a group, me and my brother, my college ushas (Indian), our neighbor Yaco (Dutch), Eugene and Taras (Russian). The first place we went to, is the Apartheid museum.

The Apartheid Museum is one of Johannesburg’s leading tourist attractions.
It takes you through a journey through the history of SA, and how it was during the apartheid (separation in life between black & white people and race classification), and how all that changed.

The museum consists of photographs, videos and borders.
What i didn't like in the museum, that they included the Lesbian & Gay right to get married in the struggle story. and there is a section where they put the photos of the homosexual weddings, I'm not discussing my opinion here, I'm just wondering why to include this in the story of their fight against race classification.

I passed my exam , or let's say I barely passed it , I don't feel like I deserve to pass, so I'm not that excited about it. any way they're not sending me home for a horrible failure and that's good.

celebrating passing the exam , me, my brother, Ushas and Eugene played cards then we went out for a walk, we are in a suburban area, so nothing but views of the hells.
I was scared at first, you know because all what we hear about the insecure in ZA. but we got home safe.

Midrand is the city I've my training in , the first thing i noticed here that, on the road they all drive in lanes, which you don't see in Libya, it feels strange, like arranged toys.

The first course ends tomorrow , the big day , EXAM!! and I got a flue, imagine how do I feel!!

It's good to move forward, but I'd miss Neil, my instructor, he's cool and cute, and sooo kind, actually all of the guys here are kind, today they tried helping me finding the direction of Kabba. and also they tried helping me find "Halaal" food. Oh!! the food is horrible, the worst stuff i had to eat ever, alhadulellah anyway, better than nothing.

wish me luck,

Trip to South Africa

Hi every body, did you miss me !!

I miss you all , my trip to London was not that good, it was a garbage plane ( not expected from the britich airways). the nice about it , i love London from up the sky, it was just a transit so i didn't get out of the airport terminal.

the flight to Johannesburg was about 10:45 hours, can you imagine!! I slept, i watched 2 movies and i got board, i couldn't sleep again. the passport control in the airport was horrible , i still standing for 2 hours waiting.

The really special thing, is the place i'm staying in , i wouldn't wish for more , alhamdulellah.
I started my course today, it's good so far. the bad news is: I'll have a test at the end of each week.

I'll post pics for the heaven I live in as soon as I'm able to move the photos to the laptop.
