This Thando (Th pronounced T), Maria my housekeepers granddaughter. Thando lives with her grandmother while her mother is studying in Johannesburg. When grandmother comes to work Thando comes to.
Thando has been coming with her grandmother since she was about 6 months old, she is almost 2 years old now.
Thando in her favourite spot to watch the world outside.
When I get home in the afternoons Thando and the three dogs are waiting at the gate. Thando follows me into the house clapping her little hands, for she knows that nKhulu, (isiZulu for grandfather) has brought her something nice to eat.
Little children have no idea of race, to her I'm just another familiar adult in her life.
