... and the actual big hole has not been depleted. It is now more productive to mine in Botswana, but they may reopen this at a later date. In the meantime, the hole is filled with water to stabilize the land. We had a fantastic local guide to share the stories of the diamond boom and the challenges Kimberley now faces. We were greeted at the train station with sparkling wine, then enjoyed another lovely ...

A blur or fun, laughter, praise, singing, eating, prayer, rain, swimming, studying, zulu, card games, talking, looming, more rain, sand, chocolate, photos and more eating! All bundled into one weekend, and what an awesome weekend it ...
