Summary
In this Globe Trekker video, Justine Shapiro and Sami Sabiti return to South Africa to see how the rainbow nation has changed since apartheid ended. They start in Cape Town, exploring the beaches and gay district before heading to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned. While Justine experiences the Hindu festival of Kavadi in Durban, home to South Africa's Indian and Pakistani population, Sami explores the diamond mines of central South Africa and heads north to meet the Venda people, the country's most skillful artists. They reconvene in Johannesburg, meet Winnie Mabaso who runs a kitchen for AIDS orphans, and then head to the Gumboots Miners' dance at the Gold Reef Mine and visit the Apartheid Museum. They finish their journey in the Soweto township, home to the only street in the world that two Nobel Prize winners lived on, and Justine visits her childhood nanny
