We met Delilah on Middelvlei who showed us what she was doing with the Middelvlei staff in terms of social work.

Joy is in the air!


We visited Lily at her home after our stop in at Zone J and thereafter returned to Cape Town where we ended our tour at about 21h30.

This was a truly awesome tour. Joel, Meg, Emily and Ben were an absolute delight to travel with. We learnt so much from each other and in the process our journey toegther tour was a non stop wonderful  event. We experienced much in unison and spoke openly and freely about what South Africa is about today. The back and forth debate was wonderful to say the least. What a brilliant, brilliant tour this was for me and I can but only hope that the Joel, Meg, Emily and ben felt so too.
