I met newlyweds Peter and Christine at their Cape Town apartment and after becoming acquainted we set off on a cultural journey by visiting the township of Kayamandi

We first travelled out to Paarl and visited the Afrikaans Language monument. Unfortunately I lost the photos of this experience and am hoping that Peter's photos will eventually act as a good fill in for this part of this webpage.

Meeting many kids at Nosandile's shack home


Handing out fruit to the kids in exchange for trash


Meeting the kids of Zone J


Attending a  church service in Zone J

All in all this was a great day purely because the Reinelts brought so much extra to the journey. We had much discussion above all that we were experiencing and I do believe that Christine and Peter now have a much better idea about what township life in Kayamandi truly entails.
