I met Stefan and Claudia in Franschhoek at Le Petit Ferme where they were staying . We soon became acquainted and set out on a winelands and cultural journey. We first stopped in at the Old Corkscrew antique shop so as to see the hidden secret in the establishment before moving onto Paarl

After our visit to Kayamandi we returned to Franschhoek at 20h30
Claudia and Stefan were a very friendly and intelligent young couple to travel with. We had great fun together and all in all I think our tour was a very successful one. Our experience in Kayamandi was a very good one and the amount of pictures above certainly do not depict the fullness of our day as a matter of fact we so occupied that I actually forgot to take many pictures during the course of our visit to the township. All in all our day together certainly was an informative one for all and many a cultural sharing took place. Great couple to tour with.
STEFAN AND CLAUDIA - THANK YOU
Received 23 March 2009
Thank you very much for the link and the great photos and nice text you put on your webpage. We enjoyed our tour of Paarl and Kayamandi very much. You provided us with very valuable insight into the history as well as the contemporary situation of South Africa and its people. It was a pleasure to meet you, Lily and the Kayamandi people, whose warmth and friendliness really touched our hearts.
We will certainly return to SA some time in the future, though it may take a few years, but we will remember and contact you once the decision is made.
In the coming weeks, I will put up the photos of our trip on our Flicker page and would be happy to provide you with the link, if you are interested in seeing them. For the time being, we would like to say thank you once again and would like to ask you, whether it is possible to send us the original file of the bottom photo (titled "Yeah! Apples!") shown on our "I Love Capetown"- photo page, as we would like to make a quality printout of this photo.
Thanks a lot in advance, keep on doing the great work,
Stefan and Claudia
