This was right before the Tourism Minister of South Africa Marthinus van Schalkwyk was about to address the media. I love the colors I have seen till now and how I am waiting to see more.

This is the tourism minister of South Africa- Marthinus van Schalkwyk, and he addressed the media in the morning and was there at the opening ceremony of INDABA 2013 as well. You can see how difficult it was to click a picture of his! For this one too, I requested someone to move so that I could also click a picture!

I have often red that you can stand in a corner with a camera and photograph people walking by. I never tried it before but it works, at least if it is quite crowded. Hardly anyone noticed me!
