Community Blog: Mexicans wave into Polokwane
A group of Mexican fans treated themselves to an extraordinary day in Polokwane.
Fantastico, were the words I could get out of a young Mexican lady who had just enjoyed a long massage, a dance with a cultural group and an exhilarating crash and drive on go-carts.
Nora Hop’s smile made up for the limit in English vocabulary as she tried to explain her first day in Polokwane. “Its wonderful, nice people, first time in South Africa and Polokwane,” she said.
The cultural experience was more fascinating to her as she was the only one called up by one of the Tswana traditional dancers to dance to one of their specials songs at Polokwane Meropa Casino and Entertainment Centre. “I was shy, also because I have never seen such a dance. But I enjoyed, ” she said.
Their tour guide, Mr Marcos Solis-Peralta from Cape Town says he is going to make sure they enjoy as much of Polokwane culture as possible. “We were surprised at the growth of infrastructure in the city of Polokwane. Although we have not travelled a lot, it looks great, said Solis-Peralta .
