The West Ocean Travel Club begins its 3rd year on Monday
September 9, featuring South Africa. The presentation by Bonita
Stewart will be in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room at 7, preceded at 6:30 by an
optional potluck dinner.
From our presenter: My trip to South Africa kept
its promise of sheer delight with wide-open spaces, a wealth of wildlife, game
parks of outstanding natural beauty, coastal paradise, breathtaking landscapes,
mountainous regions with unlimited hiking possibilities, and incredible ethnic
diversity which is a source of an outstanding artistic vitality.
During my presentation I will highlight the beauty of
southern Africa by giving a first-hand account of my experience and showing
pictures of each location. I will start in the metropolitan coastal city
of Cape Town, followed by Durban and the country of Swaziland, ending in
Johannesburg, the financial capital of South Africa. Lastly, I will talk about
the cultural experience I had and give my perspective as an African American
traveling to South Africa.
We welcome all of our old members back and look forward to
meeting new West Ocean residents who love to travel!
We welcome you to join us on Wednesday August 21,2019 at 7pm
in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room to discuss the book “The Plot Against
America” by Philip Roth (Moderator: Suman). This is an open event for the residents
& their guests who would like to join us.
“In an astonishing feat of narrative invention, our most ambitious
novelist imagines an alternate version of American history. In 1940 Charles A.
Lindbergh, heroic aviator and rabid isolationist, is elected President. Shortly
thereafter, he negotiates a cordial “understanding” with Adolf Hitler, while
the new government embarks on a program of folksy anti-Semitism. For one boy
growing up in Newark, Lindbergh’s election is the first in a series of ruptures
that threatens to destroy his small, safe corner of America- and with it, his
mother, his father, and his older brother.”- Amazon
