Istumbled upon this photo yesterday, of members of my Church in the Karoo at the end of 2013. Just two of these people are now left there -- all having moved away, out of the region, except for one who died -- and wife E. and I of course are in the photo. I have called it a "stunning exodus". Imagine then that all the English speakers in the area were sitting here, at a much larger table. Proportionately, one would see about the same reduction in numbers. Why? I never heard a clear explanation.
