I am having my second weekend out of Camphill and staying in Stellenbosch. It is a vibrant town north of Cape Town full of students from South Africa and overseas. There is quite some German speaking tongues around here as well. I am staying with Colleen and Walter who have the gift to make you feel like having known them for hundert years already after entering their house.
Yesterday evening I went to a concert at the Oude Libertas Amphitheater right outside of Stellenbosch. I enjoyed it very much even I didn’t know the Belgium singer beforehand.
But the world is small. I can tell. During our wonderful breakfast this morning I mentioned the concert and a Belgium woman who has been on her honeymoon smiled and replied that she went with him to school in Belgium. We than listened to some nice stories about those times.
Yesterday morning I went to the “slow” market where local artists sell their treasures and food stalls serve delicious meals. I was waiting at this particular store for my meal. I am not revealing what it was!?
During a walk after breakfast I discovered this wonderful sculpture. It is a reminder of South Africa’s mining legacy. Do you think he is happy? That’s what the discussion is about. Does – in this case – gold make you happy?
A place where you can relax, calm down and take a deep breath is the Botanical Garden where I stayed for a while and had a nice Cappuccino.
Here we are: Colleen and Walter in her beautiful garden where I am writing this blog and preparing the community session at Camphill coming Wednesday.
I would like to tell you more about this event but my conversation partners have the right to get the feedback first. More about it at the end of the week.
