It Never Rains in Paddafontein
by Clive Cooke
Let me introduce you to the residents of Paddafontein (Frog Fountain in English) a remote village in the semi-desert Karoo district of Southern Africa. The people could be described as: rustic, quaint, garrulous, conservative, suspicious of outsiders and at times more than a little strange. Most of the stories are humorous, a few are serious and all have a strong ethnic flavour. Please enjoy!
