The wheel turns


Things like this make you wonder how the world works. Being right in the middle of an English Literature module dealing with African texts, I’ve just read Antjie Krog’s Country of My Skull, which is undoubtedly the most horrifying book I’ve ever read. It opens with Terreblanche’s testimony before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission regarding the Kempton Park bombings.

15 years later it’s come back around. I wish death upon no one but it seems hate is a double-edged sword.


About jayl27

I'm a 26 year-old freelancer, student and kayaker born in the RSA and now living in Norbiton, UK. I'm into alternative, classic rock and some metal (how modern..), have travelled lots and will be doing lots more as soon as my boiler's fixed. I sometimes train twice a day which explains my attachment to chocolate. I'm not a nerd but my primary school did make a special reading award just for me. I write about spirits and beverages, travel, books, environmental issues, sport-related stuff and whatever else takes my fancy. I read. Lots.
