Funny South African traditions you must laugh at


1.Shoes aren’t really all that important on campus

Perhaps it’s some romantic attempt to be closer to ‘Mother Africa’ as it were, but for whatever reason many South African students feel comfortable navigating campus bare foot. So feel free to leave your footwear at home.
