Bosman and Nasrudin under starlight

In 2012 Bosman’s Oom Schalk arrived with stories in his boots at the Gauteng Pig Study group, in Kloof for 70 folk, in Newlands around the autumn fire, in Napier and in Hout Bay.

Leopards, stargazing, peach brandy, starlight, love potions, boerekos. This kind of evening is like singing around the piano at home. Stories and creative activities get folk interacting and prompt conversations. Themes… Chinese, South African, Mediterranean, Arabian nights. Spending quality time. Any rhyme or reason – birthdays, TV fatigue, the art of conversation.
