Kouga River

This is a photo of the Kouga River in the Eastern Cape, which borders on the farm on which wife E grew up. Looking at the photo, it is not hard to imagine that the road is hair-raising. The Kouga, too, is a treacherous river, and has swept many people away. OBSERVATION: One sees some history in this photo. On the far side of the river, one sees the road continue up the mountain. Just above this, one sees a thin line. It is a big stone wall, built by Khoikhoi slaves, hundreds of years ago. Today, of course, barbed wire would do the job.
