Roger Hull – Impressions from his recent trip to southern Africa.
Roger and Jeanie Hull vacationed in Africa from January 7th to the 23rd after an 18-hour plane ride from Detroit to Atlanta to Cape Town, South Africa.  The City was founded by the Dutch in 1652 and earned its independence from the UK in 1910.  While there, they traveled to Stellenbosch and wine country, climbed Table Mountain, went to the Cape of Good Hope, and visited Robben Island, where Nelson
Mandela spent 17 years in prison.  The prison is now a museum.
The next part of their trip took them to Victoria Falls and Matobo National Park in Zimbabwe, then on to Botswana, where Roger presented great close-up pictures of animals from the safari they went on.  They finished up by going to Pretoria and Johannesburg, where they visited Kapama Game Preserve and the township of Soweto.
Despite suffering tremendous poverty and unemployment, Roger said that Africa is beautiful, and the people could not have been nicer.  If it wasn’t an such a long plane ride, he would consider annual trips to the continent.
