Looking confused, I said, come on, I’ll show you how to use it.

      • The old telephone boxes exist only in the out-of-way villages now. Then, as you near them, you realise they host a community libriary. Bring a book, take a book. And vartious weeds take root.

  4. Pay phones are a thing of the past in South Africa, Susan. Everyone has cell phones even the beggars.
