Mpho Mmotlana, better known as Cronik, was one of my closest friends in Letlhakaneng. He and another friend, Juska, knocked on my door one day, declaring that I needed friends and here they were.
This is my neighbor, Onalerona. Her name, meaning “You stay with us,” was quite often true. I often found her in my host family’s kitchen, drinking tea with Father Fanuel and Ma Grace.
