November 2019 – Pictorial Newsletter

Kuumbi Mpati – the month when the clouds have finally formed and it starts seriously raining. I simply cannot believe that I am writing this at the beginning of December and our season is all but over.  It seems like only a few weeks ago that we were doing the big unpacking and getting everything […]

October 2019 – Pictorial Monthly Update
