Dried Fish (Bokkoms)

I took this photo in Velddrif, about 100 miles north of Cape Town -- the heart of South Africa's bokkoms (dried fish) industry. There is a saying in Afrikaans: "Dis bokkoms!" which translates more or less as: "That's tripe!" The drying of the fish is quite a sophisticated process. One may read something about it at Bokkoms in the Making.
