On the 7th, I got to Kuruman at 6:45 from the village I was visiting. After some coffee at Wimpy, I went to the municipality where the Kuruman library is and waited for it to open at 10 am. I sat on the steps out of the rain, read two chapters of Ulysses, and took this picture.
The library was about half the size of the one in my hometown (of 10,000), but it had air conditioning, so I sat there for the next six hours and read 2.5 Stephen King books. (Each one took about as long as the chapters of Ulysses, but were a lot more enjoyable.) It's definitely a place I'm going to be visiting a lot.
