Yesterday was another public holiday for the national election. We've seen hoards of campaigners everywhere that we've been in the last month. Mostly for the ANC party.

Monday we decided to go to school with our sister Phili. Her school was about a half hour walk from home. It was really fun because they are taking exams, but didn't have any that ...
