Sesotho in the No 15 bus in the Strand

I will miss London sorely for it is so full of South Africans that I was seldom homesick. Just last week on the No 15 bus in the Strand, I sat behind three young people talking animatedly in Sesotho. I could not resist intervening to ask, in Sesotho, where they were from. "South Africa," one replied. "Yes I know, but where?" "Rustenburg!"
