Aberdeen. – There a statue of a cat outside the Tourism Office in Aberdeen with a sad note I decided to share.

‘And may all who gaze upon this statue be reminded of the cruel and evil act. The destruction of the swallow’s nests at the Aberdeen Post Office by the renovators of the complex. October 1998. The noble, brave swallows flies thousands of miles to nest in these sad, little Karoo towns. Their tiny fledglings were offered to us for food for our cats for money. If only.’

How poignant a reminder, forever there. Not what i expected whilst walking this rather remote Karoo town.
