Reading Grandawn’s post this morning I was struck; not by the beauty of the snowy landscape, but by the absence of boundary walls around the houses. This is something I have not seen in South Africa since I was a small child and it’s a scene that never fails to surprise me when I travel abroad.
We’ve grown so accustomed to crime here; higher and higher walls are the norm. It’s impossible for me to put my thoughts into words, really.
Will there ever be a day when the walls will come down?
