Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am prepared to host people coming to my house, couples, single people too. I can offer to take them around my beautiful province but that has to be arranged in time because of my busy schedule.I will appreciate if CS members can also accommodate me whenever they can.I am just 40km to the closet gate to the famous Kruger National Park and few more km to God's Windows, Mac-Mac falls, Pilgrim's Rest and Potholes.It takes me just 100km each way going to either Swaziland or Mozambique nearest borders.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None so far.Just got introduced to CS recently and I love it. Was hosted once too.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Touring in Europe seeing all amazing piece of architecture and landscape ( Finland, Slovakia, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Germany, Denmark, France, Belgium and Netherlands, Switzerland then Tanzania, Botswana, Swaziland, Mozambique and Nigeria) I came to one conclusion which I hold so dear today, that THEY ARE NEITHER GOOD OR BAD THEY, THEY ARE JUST DIFFERENT SO IS THEIR CULTURES . "Diversity in unity" think about that.

Teach, Learn, Share

One has matured enough to realise that we are actually all belonging to one big nation, separated by undesirable borders and selfish political games played at the expense of human nature.If indeed people or countries around the world were so much concerned for world peace, improvement of global economy, eradication of poverty and diseases, do you think that the conditions that are put by IMF and World Bank prior to giving aid and reducing the ailing countries debts if considerate? if countries spend about 25% of their budget for military purposes and 1% for AID then surely something is not correct.Check the book Looting Africa... maybe you'll understand where I stand.Why don't we acknowledge and appreciate our diversity rather than trying to convert people to see "absolute" life from our eyes?
