  11. You really captured a feeling and a story here. Beautiful work! I’m sorry that your area has so much poverty it is so sad. It’s great that you are there making a difference.

    • Thanks! And ironic enough some of the richest people in South Africa are living here in a town within a few kilometers from Sir Lowry’s Pass Village. And there are wine farms around the village. Have a great day Starla.
