(‘Stoep’ = Afrikaans for ‘Verandah’. It originates from the Dutch ‘Stoep’ but the Dutch ‘Stoep’ is not a verandah; in fact it’s just a small step-up in front of a (front-)door sometimes covered by a mat to wipe your feet off… This Dutchman in South Africa has a south African ‘Stoep’ including ‘Braai’ – ‘Braai’ in our case is a giant BBQ-installation including chimney, etc. 😉 )
