Brisbane, Australia

One of the government centers of South Africa. Historically, it is the center of apartheid South Africa, and there are plenty of very interest monuments about the pioneering movement to colonize South Africa and the Orange Republics. It is smaller than Johannesburg, which makes it feel a bit more manageable, though it is an easy train ride to get to Johannesburg
