My World Tuesday - Street Medicine Man

The street medicine man was drawing lots of attention from the tourists that visited Jonker Walk last Saturday. There were a huge crowd circling him as he performed the act of breaking a hole into each coconut with his forefinger and threw in a lot of humour as he went on. He will then use the ointment he sells to soothe his forefinger to prevent it from swelling. It was so impressive that he was able to sell to many of these spectators.

Don't miss him out if you ever come to visit Jonker Walk!

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
