Passing through Graaf- Rienet you should stop and see the beautiful Dutch Reform church (Moeder Kerk). The contrasting brickwork is so beautiful. Even the brackets are pretty star shaped.

Fantastic example of old churches found all over old South African towns. I love the architectural detail and the care taken to beautiful the building. Modern day cost concerns and rushed programmes allow little time for detail.
