BANGKOK, December 6, 7.23 am. I left South Africa in search of a better understanding of the world, in search of adventure, but there have certainly been times when I have felt I would love to pack it all in to be with my people, to be back in South Africa. Never has this been more true than today, I don’t know a lot of South Africans this side of the world, and it is a monumental task to try and convey a feeling like this to people who are not from South Africa. I feel like I want to be at home to hug someone who I see break down, knowing I understand how they feel, exactly how they feel, and them knowing why I am hugging them, I want to be at home today to cry with my people and celebrate an incredible man who gave us the opportunity to cry and celebrate together as one. Alas, I cannot do that.
