We were reminded of the power of radio this morning. Audrey and Thesline sent out a message of support to girls thanks to Radio Kaboesna in Calvinia.
We arrived here last night after a spectacular sunset over the Tankwa Karoo. We feel very far from our homes here. Reaching Calvin required long hours over bumpy dirt roads. We met girls preparing to for their final exams to graduate from high school and invited them on our bus. Unlike us, they haven’t had the opportunity to have a support group for girls. It made us realize how much confidence we’ve gained over the past five years as part of Rock Girl.
We pulled into Upington in time for a sunset cruise on the Orange River, a welcome sight after hours on the dusty road. As the sun went down, we danced to Boere Musiek and reflected on where travel can take you.Who thought we’d be doing the conga line to traditional Afrikaans music the night before we tour police holding cells at the Magistrate’s Court.
