The poverty of Durban

Durban Metro, KZN, South Africa
0 Kudos
While driving from Durban to the Croc Creek, we encountered some pretty deep poverty. First, we drove through some lush sugar cane fields. What we didn't know is that they do controlled burnings to , I believe, control teh spread of wild fire, but I could be wrong.

Then came the slum villages. There was a little girl, half naked, bathing in dirty water. She couldn't have been more than 3 or 4. My buddies wanted me to take a pic, but I couldn't. It would be dehumanizing for me to do that..
