After the Apartheid Museum we went to Constitution Hill and Number Four (I believe it is called), a prison where they kept many political prisoners, including Gandhi. It was very bleak and depressing and the tour guide and videos did nothing to sugarcoat the horrible experiences people had in the prison. On site is the constitutional court (so maybe this is in Pretoria?), a beautiful and innovative building.
That night we saw Umoja, a musical/dance performance. The narrator was trying to sound like Nelson Mandela but it came out more like Count Chocula, which we happily mocked the rest of the trip. It was very touristy but still enjoyable and we all had fun.
