What's really cool about Bloemfontein is the fact that it is the original home of The Lord of the Rings author! What's more, Bloemfontein is quite close to Lesotho, a very mountainous region. I wonder if this was engrained into Tolkien's heart? Just a thought!

I am originally from Bloemfontein, South Africa. It can be a cool place to "jol," or hang out. People are quite friendly. What's interesting, though, is that the area surrounding Bloemfontein is known -at least among the community- to hold a talented gene pool specifically for runners. Just take Zola Budd, for example, who was originally from there.

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
