Our brief was to do something out of the ordinary. I decided to to go somewhere I'd never been before. It was a boiling hot day, and I was feeling claustrophobic, so I ventured outside of Grahamstown and came accross an oasis.
Grey dam is in effect a third space from a journalistic point of view.
People from all over town gather there to relax and chat. There were students tanning, people getting dropped off by taxis to join a braai, and many picnickers.
I swung out over the dam and loved it. Being there calms you down, it cools you down. I will definitely be returning there.
