Round my hometown

I had the rare privilege (considering that I go back home about twice a year) of going home last week. That is why I was scarce on my blog. It was not for a good cause though because we lost our grandmother. It was a beautiful union though because we are barely home all at the same time. Nothing brings me more happiness than being with my family (and I am sure you can relate). My town, King William's Town, is a sleepy former colonial town with old buildings, crowded streets and extremely old people shuffling around. So I took some pictures (and played a hand at some editing, lol) and I wanna share them with you. Enjoy!

This is what we would call the town square. I remember as a child gathering here on December 26's as my family and their friends prepared for the annual outing. Those were good times.

This is the library. Throughout school kids would sit around here waiting for their transports (and my dad) to pick them up before they go home. I met some of the cutest boys here and made good friends and sometimes got left here, alone.

Some monument. When I took this photo, it was actually the first time in my life I looked at this up-close.

Cathedral, side view.

Statue. It was also the first time I walked up to this statue when I took this photo.

And that there is my village, my home (:
