Hi! I'm africamuse - welcome to my 'place' on the net.
Like most balanced people, I enjoy humour, serious conversation, spending time with my friends, reading, travel, etc. This site includes all these aspects, and more. If I have to describe my site in one phrase, it would have to be "personal observations of life in South Africa and the world." Here you will find research reports, debates, support, lots of jokes, poetry, music, technical resources and personal reminisces. Travel reports and pictures form a major part of the site. Some of the more serious issues dealt with include childbirth, ethics of museum display, rape survival and cultural adjustment. And a whole section of the site is tailor-made for a group of online friends, the triviads. You may have views on some of these issues. If so, please email me and tell me what you think.
I hope you enjoy your visit! Remember that this site is constantly evolving - please come back soon!
Four points for you to note as you travel through my site:
- I would like to maintain a high standard of quality here. If you come across any spelling errors, dead links, pictures that won't open, etc., please let me know as soon as possible so that I can fix them.
- You're welcome to use any of the original written material on this page, on two conditions: i.e. that you acknowledge me as the source, and that you inform me of how/where you use the information.

A final option - and one new to my site (i.e. I haven't thoroughly testdriven it yet):
You are visitor number
Hmmm....seems my counter has clocked over...

Regular visitors to my site will know about the squeezes - congratulatory cyber-hugs for all those that manage to make it here on an even 100 number. Here they are!
