"Even though I was prepared, I..." South Africa Local Custom Tip by Gypsy_Saskia

South Africa Local Customs: 136 reviews and 116 photos


Even though I was prepared, I was a little shocked every now and then by the racist thoughts some people have. Witnessing a racial fight in a post office was a very unpleasant experience. However, I was always giving my honest opinion on things and cut off conversations if I was fed up listening to some very stupid people. Luckily, they are not the majority!
