Ten Years In Our Home

Ten years ago today Elena went to a title company late on a cold evening to sign all the papers to buy this house. We have spent a lot of years here. We have had a lot of struggles and trials with this house. Elena Torello refused to quit and walk away even when this house was falling apart and hundreds of thousands of dollars “underwater.” stand on the house and look up at it admiringly. I think to myself: “This is one of my greatest good accomplishments in life.”


About tatamkuluafrica

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
