It was my second visit to Kliptown, and being a Sunday afternoon, the township was bustling with activity, and filled with kids. This was in sharp contrast to my previous visit, which happened midday on a Saturday, when the township was much quieter.
I found it a bit frenetic, to be honest. The kids were all over us, positively bubbling with enthusiasm, loving having their pictures taken and seeing them instantly on our phones and camera bodies.
I also felt a tad isolated, and envious of my compatriots familiar with the custom, and able to converse with the many interesting faces. I also kicked myself for not bringing my SLR along – many photo opportunities were missed.
There was a great turnout and everyone seemed to enjoy it. I can’t wait to go back.
