It’s been a special trip so far and it was so good to be back in the Van Reenen area where my family farmed until 1963.
I’m now in Mthatha staying at The Whitehouse Guest house and as we walked in through the dining room I saw on each table a small chalk board stand. The first we looked at read “NEVER GIVE UP!”
How appropriate! – My up and coming book, based on my father’s life, is entitled “One Man Three Lives – The man who never gave up.”
We are near Qunu – MANDELA’ s birth and burial place and we had a guided tour of his village and history – Fascinating.
