About Me:

I am a South African, married and living in Seychelles.

Despite the fact that there are approximately 3000 South Africans living and working in Seychelles at any one time, no arrangements were made to facilitate voting.

It’s 1994, and South Africa has just experienced its first truly democratic elections – and the Rainbow Nation is born.

It begins just before dusk, and thanks to the unerring accuracy of sonar night vision, the bombings carry on unabated throughout the night.

Every time we hear or read about an horrendous crime, such as the rape of a 4 month old baby, we have a kneejerk reaction and cry “Bring back the death penalty !”

Living on an island is great – you are surrounded by sandy white beaches and clear blue seas. Palm trees abound and life is, well, island-style.

Being an expat is not always easy – you miss your home country and all the things that go with it.

I was brought up on a farm and have been around dogs for most of my life.

I read a recent article, to which I made a comment. On reflection, I am afraid that my comment may have come out a little on the negative side.

In one of the many recent articles relating to the Christian / atheist debate, the author posed the following question to one of the comments : “Just tell me why you don’t believe in God”.

I attended the funeral of my husband’s godson yesterday. A man stricken down too early with cancer – he was only 55.

I have been an avid follower of the articles on News24, and consequently of the comments made by the readers.
