Wakenaam – a nice article September 10, 2016

I spent a lot of my August holidays at San Souci where my aunt Becca Sturge lived with her 8 children.  I had so much fun. Each school holidays either we went there or they came to Leguan. My mom – Sarah Schwartz Archer, are from Mara Johanna.  So Wakenaam is like a second home to me.  My aunt Becca lived for a few years in the States but has since returned to  MJ Wakenaam for a quiet retirement.  Hope you enjoy this story
