  4. Lovely wine and family tale, you are a wonderful story teller, Tandy!

    Wish that one day I will be able to say like Phillip Jonker: ‘When all is said and done and we close the chapters on our own lives I think we would all want to look back and say it was a life worth living. I made a difference.”

  12. A lovely story Tandy! I can relate to being moved by Weltevrede’s work. I recieved an email from a friend that Philip had written following the wine farm riots. In it he described an explosive situation he encountered on the farm. He approched a rioting group – pangas in hand and none of whom were workers on his farm – with respect and humility. The sentiment very quickly turned in his favour, with some of the workers shouting out encouragement to him for the work he is known to do in the local community. A wonderful demonstration of a calm and gentle approach stilling a terrible storm 🙂

  14. Very interesting piece. The Robben Island story is fascinating. Isn’t red tape such a nightmare.

    • The sad thing about all the red tape here was the missed years and opportunity!
