Ubuntu in Germany Column

Experience true ubuntu when you use public transport in SA

(Editor: Alex Smit-Stachowski is a South African journalist and speaking in her column about the country of her birth. She had lived in Krefeld, in North Rhine-Westphalia/ Germany).

Since returning to South Africa, I have been using public transport to get around. In my neighbourhood, I walk to the shops and enjoy the exercise but to get to work requires busses, metered taxis, TukTuks, the Gautrain and a great deal of patience. Besides getting where you need to be, you also experience true Ubuntu – up close and personal.
