I had a happy surprise last week, when two brothers-in-law announced themselves in Cape Town. This is J from Thembalethu, just outside the city limits of George, 430km / 270mi east of Cape Town. His origins are in Hanover village, 700km / 440mi north-east of Cape Town, in the semi-desert. A very generous and resourceful man, he is married to my wife's sister A -- a "cousin" in European terms, but a "sister" because they were raised in the same household, up on the plateau.
