My favorite part of the visit to Aspidistra is visiting the tea room for a refreshing cup of tea and a Milk Tart Cupcake…. Yummee

Tankwa Karoo National Park: Driving through the park.

15  September 2013: Tankwa Karoo National Park

Time caught up with us and we had to leave the park before closing time. These photo’s were taken on our way out of the park…

One can’t seem to notice the difference in the sky from one side of the road to the other side. One side was partly cloudy but still had blue skies the other side was dark and very cloudy with hardly any blue sky…

A Blast from the past… Project 365/365

15  September 2013: Tankwa Karoo National Park

Skooltjie

The building opposite Uintjiesbosch was originally a school for white children. The first teacher was Wessel de Lange who lived in the house below the school. The building is well-built with wooden floors and ceilings, a stoep and a full solder. It was also used for meetings of the local Farmers Association. After De Lange left, Japie van der Merwe and his family moved into the house. Christo van Wyk and Hansie Coetzee were the teachers at the now two-man school. Children could go to school until Grade 8. The school later became a school for coloured children and a hostel was built by extending the original teacher’s house and the school catered for both coloured and white children.
