Two YEPs worth
November was a very special time for me. I was able to spend some very precious time with my family in South Africa. It had been about 5 years since my last visit, way too long. And I am happy to say that my expectations were exceeded by a wide margin.
For a country with a very, very (did I mention very?) high crime rate - I never once felt threatened or uncomfortable, although, my sister probably got sick of reminding me to lock the car door.
The warmth of the people and the beauty of the country is a wonderful combination. It is nice to see the rainbow nation in all its glory (and oddness too), but mostly glory.
As always it was very hard to say goodbye... a special thanks to dachsienutz for making this such a memorable trip for me.
And a very special thanks to those Eliters who made it possible, haha21051 who assumed responsibility for the criby team, lens_books for taking over a big chunk of the newsletter, issa who landed up doing all sorts of extra work and all those tds who had to work a little harder to keep everything going!
We wish you all a very happy Christmas filled with much laughter, friendship and love.
As we move into our 13th Year Anniversary celebrations, let us all join together and continue to support and care for each other.
Wishes of peace and love to all.
