Quotes inspiration at Maropeng

We visited Maropeng for the first time yesterday! We have definitely missed out.
I can go there again because there is so much to see!

The many quotes are a call to action and very inpiring! I am sharing some of it here:

"Will we destroy ourselves?"
"If we don't act now, the terrible irony is that our great
grandchildren will only know of ancient forests through
pictures in books printed on the paper that contributed
to their extinction" - Graham Lester George
Little Missy's hands in the hand prints
of Nelson Mandela
"It is in you hands to make a difference"
- Nelson Mandela

"There are no passengers on spaceship earth.
We are all crew."
Marshall McLuhan

Mrs Ples on her last day at Maropeng
before she moves on to another exhibit
It was great that we could see the original Mrs Ples, but luckily there is enough copies of her going around.

Little Missy loved the boat ride demonstrating how the earth was formed, although it was a bit scary (she says), as well as walking over a bridge with the earth rotating around us and feeling like we are going to fall off!
But it was the highlights of the tour, and that is what she keeps on telling people when asked about her day.

Definitely worth a visit!

  1. Very interesting and informative.

  2. Actually I think they could have done more to make it more interactive. The boat ride was great, I think the rest should have also been like that.


I love to hear your comments :D
