Subject: Fabulous township tour!
Thanks again for the terrific tour of Port Elizabeth last Monday week. We're not big on guided tours (especially Frank as you would have quickly gathered!!). You really opened up that part of the world for us so comprehensively, in fact from the beginning of time. I think spending the day with you and finishing up at Red Location Museum made such an impact on Frank that that's the reason why he's calling it the highlight of his month in South Africa.
We told our son Charlie, who works in PE, that you felt that the blacks know the customs and way of life of the whites and that maybe white people don't show enough interest or make enough effort to get to know the black residents. Anyway, I'm pleased to report that yesterday Charlie and his wife Melanie and their two little boys were invited to a party in the township and to quote him "we had an incredible time...amazing singing, traditional outfits, people unbelievably welcoming, so happy to have us there, wish you could have seen it all"
We're back in Australia now ( 'hit the ground running'). We're in the middle of renovating an old house and look back very fondly on those carefree days in your beautiful country.
