Three missions three personalities. Ron is off to Grahamstown, South Africa. At first to throw himself into the big adventure of being a guest teacher at Rhodes University and tell a thing or two about new media journalism.

Then there's his job as the internet editor and journalist for the cultural tv-talkshow 'De Plantage'. They've send him on a mission as well; bring us some cultural stuff from the South and make us shiver and say ooooh!"

And of course there's something that is just not possible to ignore; Ron's alterego 'pindsvin' will handle of the role of the annoying tourist wanting to taste the cultural life of South African, like a billion other weirdo's who think they can grab a cultural shock as if it was a snack.

In this diary you can read all about his adventures and you might even be able to become part of the story from some far away country behind your computer.
