The Mighty Voortrekker Monument South Africa
The Voortrekker Monument is a monument in the city of Pretoria, South Africa. The massive granite structure, built to honour the Voortrekkers who left the Cape Colony between 1835 and 1854, was designed by the architect Gerard Moerdijk who had the idea to design a "monument that would stand a thousand years to describe the history and the meaning of the Great Trek to its descendants". It can be seen from almost any location in the city, as it is seated on a hilltop.
Further up along the Atlantic coast from Cape Town is a little Fisherman's village called Paternoster. Here, the fishermen go out in their rickety boats to bring back mullet and harders. They are salted in deep troughs and then whilst still glistening they are hung out to dry. At this point they become known as Bokkoms. Eventually when they have dried out fully they turn a golden colour.
