Fraser­burg will see us again – soon

go! - - Upfront Letters -

To quote from the ar­ti­cle about Fraser­burg in your Au­gust is­sue: “It’s not the kind of town you hap­pen across by ac­ci­dent – if you’re here, you came here for a rea­son.” And in­deed we did go there for a rea­son, al­though when we first drove through we didn’t know what that rea­son would be… We were on a road trip from Mokala Game Re­serve near Kim­ber­ley to see the stars in Suther­land in mid-win­ter. We had just driven through Fraser­burg when we had a tyre blowout. We stopped and changed the wheel. We’d just got go­ing again when an­other tyre gave way. We loaded the two stricken wheels into the boot of our friends’ ve­hi­cle and drove back to Fraser­burg to find help. The an­swer to our pray­ers was KaRoux garage. Owner Her­man le Roux and his son Herold rum­maged through the sec­ond-hand tyres stored in the roof of the work­shop and found us two of the cor­rect size to help us on our way. It was a unan­i­mous de­ci­sion to visit Fraser­burg again soon. What a lovely, friendly town, per­fectly po­si­tioned in the mid­dle of nowhere! PENNY LU­CAS, Eden­vale
