go! Platteland - - CHITCHAT -

A friend gave me the Win­ter 2016 is­sue of Plat­te­land as a gift. What a won­der­ful sur­prise. You have ac­quired an­other loyal reader, and I will make sure a copy also finds its way to Eng­land.

I was re­ally in­ter­ested to read about Vyf­ster Mo­tors in Red­der­s­burg in the Free State in Willem van der Berg’s photo es­say “Be­hind the grease cur­tain”. It brought back won­der­ful mem­o­ries of farm hol­i­days with my granny and grandpa, and our vis­its to Vyf­ster Mo­tors for re­pairs or to buy oil.

It also gave me the con­fi­dence to re­mind you about this for­got­ten town… ( No wait, we’ll keep it as a sur­prise. When we do run the ar­ti­cle, we’ll be sure to ac­knowl­edge you. – Eds.)
