Monday, October 29 I left on a tour to Vredefort Dome, the site of impact of a giantess meteorite. At 15 km of the end of the tarred road by a corrugated gravel track, I end to the information center. Of course I was the single visitor. An employee explained to me in front of the model that the meteorite touched not vertically the ground but with an angle of incidence such as it pushed in front of it, with an extraordinary force, the rock ground probably in fusion and constituted, rims, concentric circles. The impact would have taken place between Vredefort and Parys; of course non-existent it there from away billion years. I could have traversed the track while jolting, but the nose on the site without vision of in-high. I considered it regrettable that there is no tour by helicopter! I returned to Parys where I arrived shortly after noon. I found a bivouac at the edge of the river in a residential district.
Tuesday, October 30 I moved towards Johannesburg, at 1800 meters of altitude. At the entrance of the urban area I stopped at the Apartheid museum which explains the rise and fall of segregation in South Africa. Unfortunately No Photo, I stole some from there. Then at the end of the morning I was going to install me for three days in Protea Hotel by safety for my truck. In the afternoon I bought a tour in Jo'burg and Soweto, Wiki, here, place of the terrible repression of the student demonstration on June 1976 told by the Hector Pieterson museum .
Wednesday, October 31 I left on a tour of Braamfontein district while starting with Constitution Hill close to Protea Hotel and beside the Metro City Building replacing too old and exiguous City Hall. The hill is occupied on the one hand by Old Fort, 1892, which was used as prison during the apartheid with extensions out the walls whose some buildings were used for the construction of Constitutional Court of South Africa. Two world personalities were imprisoned in these places, Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela. Then I went down from the hill to immerse me in two museums. Initially Wits Art Museum is dedicated to classical, modern and contemporary African art. A little further on at the corner of Yale Rd & Enoch Sontonga Ave Origins Center is devoted at the origins of humankind. Alas arrived at the crossroads I sought the museum hopelessly the nose plunged in Lonely-Planet. As usual providence came to my help under the aspect of a charming young lady who asked me whether I sought Origins Center which is in the buildings of the university. God recognizes his people! In the afternoon I returned to the hotel by throwing an eye to Nelson Mandela Bridge as well as to Neighbourgoods Market.
Thursday, November 1 I visited the center of Johannesburg as well as Newtown. It was initially City Hall renovated in 2012 of which I visited the interior with a benevolent agent of security. Beside a building great-height is getting dilapidated throwing in the street its glazing. It is alas not a single case in Jo'burg. Library Square gives access to the library of Jo'burg of which the interior is populated by student working or playing on their computer! Of-here beyond remain some still inhabited buildings dating from the time of art-deco. I took height with the elevator to go up to the Top of Africa which propelled me to 50 stage to make a panorama of Jo'burg. While leaving I warned the building High Court whose hall is populated by lawyers under discussion. Then I entered Newtown to make a tour of a set of restored old buildings and sheltering either of museums or theater. Then I returned to the hotel before a violent storm falls down on the city. The reputation of the city is bad consequently I made use of Compact Sony to take pictures while leaving it my pocket surreptitiously. I sauntered without bag.
Friday, November 2 I went northwards to visit, in Maropeng, the Cradle of Humankind, wiki, here. Under the tumulus of entry an initiatory journey expects the visitor on his origins of million years. For the despisers of the theory of the evolution by Darwin, for the Vegan followers, the scientific evidence of the origin and the evolution of humanity is overpowering. But finally, the ideologists of all obediences are irremediably perverted by shamans with theories without scientific base.
Saturday the 3rd and Sunday, November 4 had spent to track the wild animals in Pilanesberg NP with two nights in the giant camp-ground of almost 100 sites supplied with block-ablutions very clean. The table of my tracking to the animals was not extraordinary although Pilanesberg is famous for its fauna; for example the booklet gives 50 lions, 220 elephants etc. Sunday, November 4 I left as of 6:30 and I traversed 75 km in 7 hours!
