Most Helpful Girl
Actually, I've wanted to visit South Africa, since my very first experience befriending a South African man. He was the kindest, most caring, and noble man I've ever met. When I was younger, we almost moved to South Africa at one point, but his marriage proposal to my mum ended up going a different direction. Long story short, I've always felt like I was deprived of getting to experience a country such as that.
But to get on with your question, sometimes I've heard that South Africa is a pretty violent place to live in. That there is usually a high crime rate of robbings and car hijackings and such. Boisterous, very good at footie, good food, conservative, but still a bit of segregation (apartheid), things like that.0
