    Rosie & Martha, and myself assisting for some while, were selling Macadamia Nuts on the main street of Pilgrim's Rest.

    One pack costs R20. Two packs cost R35 and Three packs R50.

    About the Macadamia itself (from wikipedia):

    Macadamia is a genus of eight species of flowering plants in the family Proteaceae, with a disjunct distribution native to eastern Australia (seven species) and Indonesia (one species).

    and
    Outside of Australia, commercial production is also established in Hawaii (the largest commercial producer), Brazil,California, Israel, Kenya, South Africa and Malawi.

    On the village's main street I found those two young kids performing a funny activity to entertain tourists.

    They were executing their job pretty well and I was happy to give them some rands I was bringing in my pocket.

    People's Box

    I found interesting this Box displayed on the counter of a local shop.

    The box was filled with coins and one can read:
