|On Google Maps, this is the Street View of the house.|
|This room overlooks some of the backyard.|
I couldn’t find a photo of the front of the house, so I snagged this one from Google Maps. (By the way, I think that the Street View option on Google Maps is one of the greatest, yet creepiest, inventions ever. Don’t you?)
When I was one and half years old, my parents moved into this house in a small town in South Africa. Twenty five years later, they are still living there.
I have many fond memories of growing up in this house. We were lucky to have a huge front- and backyard, where we could run around with our friends.
My parents love gardening and my dad even has his own vegetable garden next to the house. They have also renovated the house over the years, adding another living room, a swimming pool and they recently redid the guest bathroom, the kitchen and their bathroom.
I will always consider this house as my home, even though I live almost 13000km (about 8000 miles) away now.
