My friend Harm (who works too hard in my opinion and looks a bit like Moses with that beard) is in Kimberley, so I decided to go and visit him since he never visits me.

After years of oppression and control which ran as deep and petty as how your shack appeared, the community here is proud to have a brick wall, front door or even burglar bars that they personally chose.
