Irene is a lovely little village not too far away. They scenery was so peaceful. We went to the little market they have in the grounds of Jan Smuts home. Jan Smuts was a world fame statesman. He was a naturalist and a philosopher. He did not support apartheid and thought it was in his opinion "the greatest nonsense I have ever Heard" Wow if I could turn back time . During the general election in 1948 Jan Smuts resigned and the then president of South Africa took apartheid forward for the next 50 years.
