It’s easy to cry when you understand

The new (latest) South African Tourism Ad  has been trending around here and hopefully in other parts of the world. A lot people say forthright that it will make you cry. They’re not wrong.

I don’t want to spoil anything but there is a moment that will bring most people to tears. You’ll know it when you see it.

I, however, the Proudly South African sap that I am, started long before this moment though. I cried when I saw my country as I feel it. I cried when I saw warm generous faces, South African spaces and people sharing good food. This is my South Africa.

What brings me to tears is that the moments in the advert resonate in me. Make me feel at home and make me proud to be South African. Get the tissues and watch it.
