Story
Introduction

 I was born in a small town in Mpumalanga, called Bethal. My parents and eldest brother still live there. I have three other siblings and all three are married and have children.

I left Bethal for the first time when I started my tertiary education at the University of Pretoria in 1996. Apart from my 9-month stay in The Netherlands, I have lived in Pretoria. Due to my work I did live in the Netherlands a few more times at 3 month intervals.
