As our South African Airways planes’ wheels hit the runway at OR Thambo International airport there was an eruption of African voices, a chorus of native tongue engulfed the entire plane. There was a rhythm to their song that one misses when abroad. There’s something about getting back that excites the spirit and makes one want to express the feeling, there’s certainly something about the colors of the earth as one banks for the final approach to the runway. Then the cabin door opens and Africa flows back into your airways and into your blood. It is then that you know you’re back, you’re back home.
As you enter the colorful international arrivals hall you need to stop. Stop for just a minute, take in the maze of busy travelers and vibrant smiling Africans – then look up, look high above the crowd, and it is there that you will find the spirit of Ubuntu….
Eleven official languages, numerous native tongues, dozens of tribes, and yet not one native word for stranger…..Welcome to South Africa”
