The exquisite garden of our friends Sara and Celia where we stayed over in Paarl

Display of the SJOE! range at the Heritage Village - a little 'cottagey' but it was the countryside!

Paarl is a town about 65 kilometres north of Cape Town in the heart of the winelands. We spent yesterday evening there at the opening at Gallery 88 and then today at the Heritage Village celebrations which were a bit fuddy-duddy but nevertheless rather fun. One of the main aims of this particular event was to bridge cultural gaps between a rather diverse and divided local population. So this was a start; and surely, with time and experience, future such events could be very significant.
