Mapungubwe, award winning center.

Unread post by Meandering Mouse »

I found this little gem on the Mapungubwe interpretative center. I thought that it was worth sharing as it is a very interesting little documentary on an award-winning building.

I can't wait to visit the center. The last time I was there it was not yet completed. There seems to be a cathedral sacredness to the building.

Here is another interesting little video that I found.

I think this is an example of ethics at its best.

We were fortunate to be able to have Johannes as our field guide when climbing Mapungubwe Hill.
