Photographer's Note

A few days ago king Mswati III of Swaziland announced, to mark 50 years of independence from the British rule, that the country from now on is going to be named eSwatini.

Driving through Swaziland in 2016, we made a stop in the village of Lavumisa in the Shiselweni region, near the border against South Africa. A cluster of tratidional rondwel houses caught my attention. When I captured a few pictures of the buildings, a woman came walking towards us. It turned out to be a very gentle and hospitable lady, who would like to show us around in the nice cluster of rondawel houses. The woman, who lived here with parts of her family, also was a kindergarten teacher, and ran a kindergarten located just a few meters away (main picture). She also gave us a tour in the kindergarten. An exciting encounter with a great resource person and a representative from the country now called eSwatini.

I will upload two WS photos. One that shows the cluster of rondawel buildings and one of the kind kindergarten teacher.
