Today is Blog Day

So, as the rules of Blog Day go, I'll refrain from including any of the recent additions to my actual Blog Roll - since that's a far more permanent link :) But I will mention them briefly, in case you missed their addition: The Adventures of Miss M and What Am I Reading.

Now it's time to set off and find my 5 recommended links:

1. noodle was here - just a girl from durban talking about my life: food, friends, family…
> I really enjoy this blog and the photos are always stunning, currently I'm still just getting it daily via rss but perhaps one day it'll move onto my blog roll :)

2. AfriGadget - Gadgets for Africa: Solving everyday problems with African ingenuity.
> This site is hysterical, especially after my recent travels and those brilliant wooden Congo bicycles!

3. Sugar Girls and Seamen - I am writing a book about the social dynamics of dockside prostitution in Cape Town & Durban. This blog explores my research experiences, the writing process, and some of my findings about this shadowy world.
> I found this blog a while back when there was that whole skandaal over the Male Prostitute who was posting all his experiences with loads of top SA names. I only really read it back then, but the book concept sounds interesting enough.

4. Cape Town Daily Photo - Each day we post a new photo, taken somewhere in or around our beautiful city, Cape Town, together with a little bit of history, a touch of culture, some entertainment, a smidgen of sport, and a whole lot of enthusiasm for the place we call home.
> Now this sounds like a good idea to me :) I small reminder of home - not that I recognise any of the picture on their page at the moment. Still, it might just be worth checking out in the future.

5. Credo Mutwa - Zulu Shaman, traditional healer, Zulu Sangoma & High Sanusi
> Hmmmm, I added this one because Witch Doctors fascinate me ... I'm not sure how much of it I'd read, but it certainly piques my curiosity!

Well, those are my 5. I'm pretty sure I've covered the request that "bloggers from all over the world will post recommendations of 5 new Blogs, preferably Blogs that are different from their own culture, point of view and attitude. "
