    ... spun comforts. We spent hours escaping the heat sipping ice cold gin and tonic on the covered wrap around verandah. On both evenings, we met young middle class black men on short business trips from Jo'berg. Their full barrelled laughter was infectious. We swapped stories of our lives and they eagerly shared their experiences growing up in SA. They refuse to wallow in the bitter legacy of apartheid.

    ... recycled glass wares! We also promised a friend of ours that we would bring some back for him.
