President Reitz – 365 Photos Challenge #42

One thing I love about Bloemfontein is its rich history along with its landmarks.

In front of the National Afrikaans Literature Museum is the statue of President Francis William Reitz. Now, do you find it a bit strange that an old President is in front of a museum that has to do with Literature?  I did at first, until I started doing a bit of research.

Besides being a statesman, politician and lawyer, he was a poet that has shaped Afrikaans poetry. Maybe I will find some of his work when I actually go visit the museum.

You don’t have to be nominated to join in the fun of the #365_Photos_Challenge,  just pick up your camera and start posting. Just be sure to read the Rules and Guidelines.

In case you missed my previous entry, you can see it here: Literature Museum
