Here’s just a handful more photos of Graaff-Reinet from the blog of Angelika Wohlrab, a South African tour guide, author, and photographer. Above is another Cape Dutch gem, the Urquhart House with its splendid plasterwork design in the gable.
This ancient-looking water wheel is in the Reinet House complex. For some reason it has an almost Bavarian feel to it.
Also at Reinet House is this rather significant vine. It was planted in 1870 and is still going strong.
And again — simple, dignified buildings. This is what South African government-built housing should be like: working families deserve affordable beauty.
