Waterval Onder

Waterval Onder is Dutch for 'below the waterfall'. It's 5km from Waterval Boven (above the waterfall) where I live. There's not that much that still goes on in this tiny, historical hamlet.
My favourite is the moody little sand road that runs parallel to the railway tracks. When there I try to imagine how things were back then.
Where, for example, did the Transvaal Republic's president Paul Kruger take his walks in the short time that he was here before going into exile in Switzerland via Lourenco Marques?
