... our next stop, Knysna, where we were staying the night. Knysna was really lovely and we drove up to the 'Heads' where the ocean enters the lagoon to get some fantastic views of the town. Our B&B was the delightful Bridgewater on Main St.

... tiny shack and a hand-written sign on a make-shift juke box read that it cost R1 (12c) to play a song request. Laundry hung outside on clothes lines, and everyone seemed to get around on foot. Unemployment was high so many men loitered around the highway turnoff looking for day labor. Being with the guides meant we were granted access and acceptance that would have been impossible otherwise, and nobody denied our photos. I did feel like we were like voyeurs in ...
