Open Air Museum, South Africa - Part 2

Kleinplasie Living Open Air
Museum, Worcester,
South Africa

Kleinplasie is truly a living open air museum, because they have a fully functioning farm with trained staff who make things the same way as back in the pioneer days in the 1700's and 1800's. On this visit we saw one lady making Milk Tart (Melktert) and another one making candles. We couldn't stay long by the candle making, because the animal fat that was about to be cooked stank badly.
