Italian fans

We've been hard at work developing and refining our fantastic new tour called “Sex & Slaves in The City”.

Recently, while Dean Paarman was practising, an Italian journalist asked if she could join us. We were delighted to have an objective person attend. Roberta mentioned that she had other commi

tments but would like to join the tour-practice for a few minutes. Well, she was still with us 2 hours later when Dean completed the tour . . . and she said that it had been a great experience. With that vote of confidence from the Italians we reckon we are just about ready to fly.

The reality of Cape Town slavery

Most of us are aware that there were slaves at The Cape some time in the past. But how much do you know about the reality of slavery?

I am amazed that slavery even existed. The idea of owning another human being is bizarre and reminds us of the baser side of human nature.

Do you know that children could be sold as slaves separately from their mothers? In about 1657 Jan van Riebeeck was given the gift of a slave by the name of Clein Eva. She was 5 years old!

In 1693 Simon van der Stel, a subsequent (and very influential) Dutch representative at The Cape purchased 3 children as slaves and most remarkably sold a 3 year old slave by the name of Revan!

Imagine the trauma suffered by these children and their mothers.

What do you think about this?
