Visiting Lesotho

Jpeg

This post is mostly photos.  After our meetings, as part of Kevin’s new job with Alternative Theological Education (see “about us” to read more about this, we visited a lady in the capital and then a family up in the mountains.  It is about 5 hours south to the capital, and then another 5 hours up into the mountains.  He spent a lot of time talking with each of them and Ben and I enjoyed our time with them too.  The mountain views were spectacular and a big change for us after Namibia.  The twisty roads, men on horseback (carrying big sticks) and lone shepherds were striking.  It was very funny to see the sign at left for Sani Pass, because we came through there on our motorcycles back in 1996 when we drove through South Africa and came to this same area to visit a group of AIMers living there.  We were tempted to go up and down the pass again (considered treacherous and beautiful views) but time did not permit.  Lesotho gets snow in the winter and has almost no trees.  It is a fascinating country!
