I stayed with a friend of Megan Owen’s at a guest farm about 130 Km north of Cape town (I now have a Honda CX500) and was made very welcome. It is about a 80 hectare farm, growing table grapes - now in the picking season.

They have about 80 resident workers on the farm - mostly colored people. They have a creche for the children, the men do the picking, and the women to the sorting, snipping of bad grapes, weighing and packing.

I visited the surrounding countryside, and will be fixing up his computer setup ..

We went to a concert by the symphony at Stellenbosch, and I met some colored people there who do community theatre. I hope to look in on a rehearsal this week.

Back in Cape town to sort out Visas for Lesotho and Swaziland, and will be setting off next week for places East.

Cheers, Andy!
