Constitution Hill is definitely not filed under my happy places, but it’s a real place and a place that makes you think.
On Friday afternoon we paid a visit to this somber place. A place that reminds us of our past and impresses the responsibility we as young South Africans have to live out our freedom. All of us.
The facade of the Old Fort
A statue of Mahatma Ghandi overlooking the non-white male prison grounds. A place, that was once the most inhumane, but will never again be like that, because of men and women like him. My favourite photo of the day.
Our tour ended at our Constitution Court. The highest court in the country. I didn’t know this, but other countries have a Supreme Court and that is their highest court. In South Africa we have the Constitution Court as our highest court.
Entrance to Constitution Hill is R55 and you can pay on the day at the Visitors’ Centre. The tour takes about 2 hours, but you can easily spend half a day going back to some of the exhibitions and reading what they are about. A definite must for all South Africans.
Live free, live happy…
