    ... s health and Barry’s ability to feel comfortable being away from her at this very sensitive time. But on Friday evening, and with Wendith feeling well enough to be left alone in the afternoon, Barry and I drove out to Lithlie and Rosie’s home in Ananda, only to find the class had been moved into a more rural part of the township where Rosie’s mother lived.

    ... scare mongering comments from some about the dangers of townships, the favelas of South Africa. My new tent had gone up with success, I was pleased, and so was Kesh, as he didn't have to share his tent with me anymore. He did however have to wait til I got up before he could practice yoga in the mornings we camped there, as I stole his yoga mat to use as my bed. The purpose of staying in the townships was to gain trust and acceptance from PB and the members of his ...
