KAS VISITS THE HOUSE

A KAS ROAD TRIP - DAY 2

Having spent the evening in Newcastle, Wendy and I headed off bright and early to the city of Ladysmith.  Ladysmith is in the Uthukela District of KwaZulu-Natal, and is 365 kilometres south of Johannesburg. Important industries in the area include food processing, textile and tyre production.

There were road works for a long stretch of our journey which slowed us down considerably, but we eventually arrived safely and met up with Matthew and Gina and a long-time friend of Knit-A-Square, Joy Coetzee.  Over a cup of tea we caught up with all that Joy is doing for the babies in and around the Ladysmith area and then boosted her efforts with bags full of your contributions.

From left to right:  Me, Joy, Gina and Wendy in the first photo and me, Joy, Gina and Matthew behind Joy’s very full car!
