Film Quizzes: South Africa

It was my absolute pleasure to meet WordPress readers Abbi and her husband Paul for drinks and blog-related chat. Those familiar with Abbi’s blog will know her as funny, entertaining and engaging, and in person she was no different. A very fun few hours. She’s even promised to bring some of her heavenly-sounding mint choc-chip cookies next time. In tribute to meeting my first blogger, I am doing a quiz on films set in South Africa, Abbi’s birthplace and home until she moved to London over 10 years ago. Feel free to suggest any other films set in South Africa that have captured your attention. A special shout-out to South Africans and fab WordPressers Natasha and Nadine too.

  1. Yay! I got all 6. Blood Diamond isn’t actually set in South Africa though 😛 It was great to meet you 🙂

  2. Reblogged this on abbiosbiston and commented:
    I recently got to meet one of my fellow London based bloggers, Alex Raphael in person for a drink. We had a great time making friends and talking about brownies and he was sweet enough to do this quiz as a little tribute to me. Check it out.

    • Thanks. I’ve not seen Blood Diamond but I was led to believe that not all the film takes place in Sierra Leone and that South Africa was more prominently featured. Abbi helpfully pointed out the error, so I’ve changed it for another, more recent, film.

  3. I only go one, Alex! (Zulu) But I also got a lot of pleasure reading that you met a fellow blogger and also from connecting to more awesome WordPressers through this post. Many thanks!

    • Thanks Ann. Abbi and Paul could not have been sweeter. They really complement each other perfectly. Abbi’s has managed to keep her accent too, and was highly entertaining when telling blogging anecdotes.

  4. That’s awesome that you and Abbi met up, Alex. What a great post to commemorate that. I only got the last three, plus the bonus one. I’m curious about Cry Freedom now.
