Teddy Bear and Claire bid Kayamandi farewell.
This was a wonderful day for me as a tourguide as I found Claire to be person with a huge sense of social morality and as a result of this our time together especially at the Afrikaans language monument as well as in Kayamandi was extra special. Claire was definitely "my kind of travel person" and we clicked instantaneously after starting our travels and she showed great interest in all that we were doing thereafter. This was a wonderful touring day for overall and I have can only hope it was as such for Claire too.
THANKS A TON CLAIRE
Received 3 September 2008
I would like to say a huge thank you for a truly memorable day spent with you in Cape Town & especially Kayamandi. Meeting the people & spending time with the children was a highlight of my first visit to South Africa. What an amazing place! It will stay with me for a long time.
I would like to wish the children a successful move to their new centre - I will be following online to see the progress through your future visits on your website. Thank you for posting my own photos too - it was a change for me to have a webapge ;-).
I have emailed Charles about a possible link with our school & wait to hear from him. We have started school again this week. I know that the children in both countries can learn a lot from each other. Also I have to ask how what the outcome was for the lady & the jeans? Has she taken you up on the offer? I wish her well for the future.
Claire (and teddy!!)
