Is this South Africa’s 12th official language?

When former US president Barack Obama visited Johannesburg earlier this year, South African president Cyril Ramaphosa joked on stage that his guest fell short in only one department next to Nelson Mandela: dancing. But poor Obama never stood a fighting chance – most South African politicians dance at events, political rallies and even in parliament. Around the world, we dance as an expression of love, desire and hope. Rhythmic or not, we move our bodies to music as a way of celebrating and showing joy at collective gatherings. But in South Africa, dance has gone beyond the world of...

In the mid-1980s, as a group of American archaeologists pored over satellite images showing Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, they did not know what to make of one unexpected pattern: a near-perfect ring, about 200km across.

Why a group of hippos is called a bloat

“Do you know what those are called?” the safari guide at Botswana’s Chobe Game Lodge queried while I watched a large group of hippos unabashedly bathing in the waters of the Zambezi River. “A bloat of hippos!” he answered rhetorically with the grin of a man who knew this tidbit of information would delight his guests. My smile matched his as I laughed at how apropos the word seemed at describing this mass of bulky beasts. ‘A bloat of hippos’ was a witty and whimsical linguistic contrast to the almost Orwellian ‘nest of vipers’ and...

A strange welcome in Canada

Suddenly, I’d become the post-dinner entertainment. I felt myself turning red as seven pairs of eyes stared at me – the girl from the US, now partially hidden inside an oversized fisherman’s jacket, dark green rubber boots and a yellow, broad-brimmed fisherman’s hat that’s known in these parts as a sou’wester’. I was in Seal Cove, a village of about 300 people on the Baie Verte peninsula of the north-eastern coast of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. I’d been brought here by my friend Sam, from nearby Middle Arm (population 474) and her...
