That Was Then, This Is Now

Today’s title was chosen by Kim van Niekerk, “That Was Then, This Is Now”.

Ever wondered what life was like in the 80’s or 90’s? Well today I have a treat for you, my parents, on video, answering a few questions.

To give you some context. My dad started his carefree life out in Noordhoek, but the family was later relocated to Ocean View due to the Group Areas Act. My mom on the other hand grew up in various areas on the Cape Flats, moving from family member to family member until she found a live in job as a carer in her late teens.

They met each other in 1980 . . . Β Please give them some love, this is their YouTube debut!
