François and I (João) met in 1996 at Sappi, where we both worked. He a proud boer, me a temperamental porra!
Our home is in Centurion (we love and miss it!) but in 1998 François was transferred to Hong Kong, and that's where we live now. Our new house is a 'split-type' one... what's a split-type? Well, in this case, we have 8 floors (1 room per floor) and 80 stairs to climb!!! We certainly cannot complaint about fitness maintenance... This is a view of the front. From bottom to top: entrance, kitchen, kid's bedroom and guest-bedroom.
My daughter Giselle was the Flower Girl, and, boy, was she happy! She just couldn't quite understand why daddy wouldn't marry her as well... quite difficult to explain that stuff to a kid... Here we are happily together!
We went on a marvelous trip down the Wine and Garden Routes!
At Stellenbosch we failed to visit the Archives in search of more details about our family. Pity, but I suppose we can always do that some other time.
I cannot forget the marvelous landscapes, the people and the happiness in that area! It was a great experience and I hope to go back there again...
