“This is my town, I was born here and I’m not going anywhere”

“People always say, when you go to Cape Town you have to stay indoors….you can’t even watch a fight….you could get shot just watching”

Heidelberg is a small town located near South Africa’s south coast, about half way between Cape Town and Knysna. We sat down with a few domino playing residents, some who have called Heidelberg home for over 40 years. They share the joys and woes of small town life. Despite the high rate of unemployment, these residents couldn’t see themselves living anywhere else.
