Matjiesfontein in one portrait of a village

Remember our recent road trip off the beaten track  (‘the real South Africa journey begins >100 km beyond Cape Town’). One of the places we (me and Yvonne) visited was Matjiesfontein and the most valuable memories we’ve composed in one portrait of a village. Most impressive for us were the wind pump and the entertaining family on the station. But also local guide Geert Jan Teunissen on the piano in the local pub is in our hearts. Matjiesfontein is a museum village build, in the 1880-thies around a train station along the railway that connects Cape Town with Pretoria. The present owner has conserved the village and surrounding farms to the way it was a 100 years ago. All pictures taken and processed with the equipment as described in the ‘gear-page’ of this blog.
