          Griet, die juweel, wat ons so vriendelik ontvang en behandel het, was 'n 'hit'. Baie dankie. Persoonlike aandag deur Pieter was ook baie lekker. Ons het heerlik gekuier, baie dankie.Een opmerking: sal volgende keer vir kamer vra aan voorkant van gastehuis. Was bietjie gehinder deur mense wat oorkant die straat woon.
