My housemate Herb Blank and I lived in the town of Hlatikulu, in the southern Shiselweni district. The town had two junior secondary schools. I taught at one and Herb at the other.The town also had a hospital. Below is a photo of the road from Manzini, entering Hlatikulu from the north. The town is on top of a hill.

I don't remember a Central Hotel, but I do remember a place called the Assagai Inn. Herb and I occasionally had dinner there.


This is a photo of Herb in downtown Hlatikulu with Mathilde. I don't know how to describe Mathilde, except that she is somehow associated with Bheka Pierce. Bheka can probably provide more details.

I believe that is Christ the King school, where Herb taught, on top of the adjoining hill.
