    ... these song. A twenty minute vocal hand clapping encore came to an end with the piercing sounds of the sound system coming to life and the main act was under way .......

    The guitars twanged in tune, the drums beat to the right beat, the percussion instruments' all worked and Mdu sung with passion and feeling. The momentum may have been lost, but Mdu was not going to let this day go by without giving his and his choirs all. Songs rolled of ...

    ... that I would not have to rise at dawn for a game drive.

    Sunday was a very pleasant day. Richard and Jill had church duties. I relaxed at home catching up with my emails and doing some washing and ironing. We went out for lunch to a lovely restaurant called Makaranga, in nearby Kloof. It was set in beautiful tropical gardens and after eating we enjoyed a short stroll in the warm spring sunshine.

I enjoyed that some people were wearing smurf hats that made them look like uncle smurf and that I heard the "clicking language" which is a fun language. The guide also said that the bushmen had disappeared from that area as up until the 1980s it was ...

    ... us questions. Perhaps this was because the language barrier was no longer an issue, or because the children were older and more inquisitive. However, I felt that at Melville everyone was getting something from the experience. Classrooms were filled with 45-50 children and were dirty and poorly equipped with just a chalkboard and a selection of old textbooks for resources. In every room rote learning was taking place, and lots of copying from the board, but children took pride in ...
