BY FRANK McCLELLAND. Since I was a small boy I have always wanted to see ‘black’ Africa. My interest stemmed from an atlas we still have with a photograph of a beautiful Masi woman and a Zulu warrior. Later I saw the film Shakker Zulu and started to read some of the history of that nation to do with the wars against the British. Then came the film, ‘Out of Africa’ and the story ‘South of the Limpopo’ by Dervla Murphy. A long-time friend knew of my interest and offered to take me to South Africa where he was working on a Poverty Alleviation project in the Limpopo Province.

BY FRANK McCLELLAND. I flew from Melbourne to Hong Kong and thence straight to the city of Nanchang in the Jiangxi province. This is my analysis of what I saw and heard while resident, principally in the city of Nanchang with a few days’ travelling – first, south to Chen Ren, then north to the city of Juijiang on the Yangtze River and to the hill resort of Lushan. I left China (after a 17 hour train journey from Nanchang) via Guangzhou and Hong Kong.
