I’ve really been thinking about what to say in the post cause the pictures i took of Durban on my ‘ol cracked iphone do it no justice- AT ALL.
My first visit to South Africa ( and any other african country outside of Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire) was amazing. I was in Durban to attend the 35th annual Durban International Film Festival (DIFF).
Durban was beautiful. Driving from the airport I compared it to many cities but it’s its own gem. Beaches, skate parks, friendly people, greenery/parks ( take a hint Accra!) Spices. Spices. Spices my people!! I love spices. sigh
DIFF itself was an eclectic mix of filmmakers and enthusiasts from around the continent and the world. There are some amazing movies and documentaries made on and about the continent that I wish were more widespread.
Durban, you are a winner.
