reading signs

Sometimes you can tell a lot about a country- its values, people and way of life- just by looking carefully at its signage. These three say different things- one is about language, one reflects the link between the 'cradle of humankind' to the hope of the new democracy and the other hints at the fear that still exists in places like Joburg.

I guess that whatever the connotation, positive or negative, none could ever be as bad those that pushed blacks one way and invited whites another under apartheid.
