Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Your writing has shown us the strain of simply living in Johannesburg - unless one were to set aside sensitivity or any concern for morality - let alone pursue a doctoral thesis involving fieldwork. Africa plus European settlement plus white supremacy, racial and ethnic distinctions throughout, wealth and utter poverty, meshed-up cogs in a broken gear-box. And you have to study rocks?

It's not surprising you have slipped away. Welcome back!
