Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic

Kuva 465

Cape Town, South Africa

Near Cape Town dock there is several old ships on a dryland. I have no idea will those ships sail ever again. Maybe some of those will. Others are probably just getting rust and waiting for their final destination. To me their are relics.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

South Africa

The monument I want to show to you is Robben Island. It’s a symbol of fight for freedom and equality.

During the apartheid (and even before) many political prisoners were sent to Robben Island to serve their sentences. One of the prisoners was Nelson Mandela who spent 18 years there. You can only imagine what it’s like to spent a decade or two in a place like that just because you want that all the same rights (to study, to vote, to live where you want) belong to every one.

In their song Asimbonanga (Mandela) Johnny Clegg and Savuka call for some of those anti-apartheid activist who were in Robben Island in 1987 when the song was released. You should check that out.
