Durban is located on the east coast of South Africa in the province of KwaZulu-Natal and in the municipality of eThkwini. It is the third largest city in South Africa and the busiest port in Africa.
Durban was originally called Port Natal and was founded by British settlers. Indian workers were brought in to work the sugar cane plantations, making this one of the largest population centers of Indians in the world outside of India. Zulu and English are the most common languages in Durban.

On ne voit pas souvent de photos de cette partie du monde, si loin de l'Amérique. J'aime beaucoup le point de vue qui nous montre une belle plage et la ville moderne sous un ciel parfait.
Bonne et heureuse année

I don't see may photos of South Africa posted in my "corner" of TE. That is one place that is on my list of places to see. Thank you for this excellent postcard from Durban.
With best wishes for a happy 2014,

You're capturing well by this waterfront by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the ocean with water spray and a group of high building along standing on the seashore. It seems to a spectacle similar to Gold Coast in Australia. The whole is balanced well by a good arrangement and beautiful color combination.
