A small town with friendly people

It's a small town somewhere in the Northern Cape not far from Eastern Cape and Free State provinces. It's a bit quiet area, lovely friendly people

The Checkers is quite good, but I have never experience so many jobless people that are pestering you in the streets.

Nice Karoo town in central North Cape. Friendly people and healthy area. Feel a lot healthier when visiting the area. Place is called De Aar (Afrikaans name ) that refers to the strong underground water that is one of the towns MAIN source of water.
