I just loved this part of the trip. We went to the small town of Piketberg and met hundreds of young people who just wanted to be kids and enjoy life.
We started off by walking throughout the neighborhood just meeting the locals and inviting them to a children's day in the park. We must have gotten about 260 kids to come and have some fun. Along the way, we met all kinds of funny, interesting lively and mostly friendly children and their parents. there was the little boys who just love rugby and they wanted show me how to play. There were a group of kids who just wandered throughout the streets just looking for trouble, I think we were all these kinds of kids when we were younger.
I met Chris, he and his son Andrew were the heroes in the community.
I talked earlier about how the city was juxaposed. Some of these photos show that. The big Dutch Reform Church on the hill and the small half built roofless church down in the other part of town.
I really enjoyed all that I experienced and look forward to meeting these people again sometime soon.
