    Did you have any luck?

    Wow. This has to be a record. Dredging up a thread that's over ten years old.
    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.

    University of Cape Town, if I recall correctly, has a good program. So does the University of Witswatersrand (im sure I spelled that wrong), which is one of the best universities in the world.

    The Urban Planning program at Wayne State University in Detroit took a trip out to South Africa in the summer of 2006 to look at some of the developments. Unfortunately, I did not go on the trip so I cannot really give you too much information, but you may want to contact the university http://www.clas.wayne.edu/GUP/ and see if they can give you any more info (I know they gave a few presentations based on their trip and maybe they could at least send you one of the Powerpoint presentations they had).
