Read ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Dervla Murphy Read South from the Limpopo ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Dervla Murphy's journal of her cycle tours of South Africa in 1994 gives a day by day view of that period When Dervla first pedalled across the Limpopo she fancied that she understood South Africa's problems because for than 40 years she had f. I really enjoy Delva Murphy s approach to travel writing she rides a bicycle drinks beer with the locals talks with all sorts of people and is very tolerant of different opinions and approaches to life This book is about her travels around South Africa at the very end of apartheid in 1993 She returns for the elections and returns again to see what has happened a few months after the election of Mandela in 1994 I nearly stopped reading after 72 pages so many acronyms and an entire social political system I knew so little about that I could almost not follow the text But then the real Delva showed up After she begins talking with people and telling their stories I really enjoyed the book and felt I learned uite a bit about the history and the life of many different people in South Africa I enjoyed her stay in the black slum of Khayelitsha I also was impressed that she genuinely liked many of the Afrikaners she met even though she differed greatly from them in her political views And of course her bicycle adventures and her great appreciation of nature are always of interest I liked learning just a little bit about her personal life when she visits her daughter lives in Mozambiue I was also a bit shocked when she admitted to not knowing how to change her own bike tires or I suppose tyres since she is Irish An unexpected treat was a bit of history about Redvers Buller during the Boer War My father always told me that my Uncle George was going to be named Redvers Buller because he was born on the day Buller led the relief at Ladysmith February 28 1900 I think my grandmother insisted on George instead I need David McCullough to write a book about the Boer WarsI think the book is a good place to start learning about South Africa today I am not sure what my next book should be in that area

Often my experiences here have been emotionally grueling some verging on the traumatic Dervla Murphy states as she closes out her novel I think most reader s will feel close to the same after experiencing her 400 page journey through South Africa before during and after Apartheid has been struck down during the early 1990 sI went into this book expecting a travel book but in reality it s a story about a country divided coming together amidst massive political changes By the end I was somewhat exhausted trying to keep track of all the different cultures political factions tribes ideologies racism violence and vocabulary to describe all of it The situation there at that time seems hopeless and many times I felt as if South Africa is succumbing to anarchy It s apparent from this book that despite a positive change in political climate for a country not all is right or functioning well Placed next to any other country on the planet this book is a mirror of the struggle for people s independence against a greedy oppressive political landscape While there s hope conveyed overall I found this book to be uite depressingI will say this Dervla Murphy has some major cajones as I can not imagine myself traveling by bicycle through that region let alone an elderly woman by herself
