Peace and Blessings be with you.

Growing up in a community where everyone knows who you are because they can figure out who your parents are by looking at you has its perks. It also has its disadvantages, especially for naughty little boys stealing the locks off people’s letter boxes just because we figured out how to do it with hair clips!

The Bo-Kaap, literally ” above Cape” is a special place. It is a place where kids still play in the streets, and do things kids are supposed to do, climb trees, throw stones and play with sticks.
