Yeoville, South Afriica -
This is Yeoville. It deserves a film in itself for there was no other place like it in the South Africa I knew. At one point a good friend who was putting me up introduced me to his next door neighbour. Four years later Cheryl Carolus was the South Africa High Commissioner based in the UK. That was Yeoville for you.
Fifteen years ago I lived here as a freelance stringer. Last week I spent an hour around the place before catching a flight back to the UK. Wonder what the district 9 gang would have made of it?
