Frank is from the Republic of Congo and works as a parking lot “guard”. Many people from all over Africa flock to South Africa and take on any job they can find.
A parking lot guard is there come rain or shine and Frank is a particularly friendly man, always inquiring bout one’s family and giving one a blessing when one goes on one’s way. French is the lingua franc of the Congo, but all the Guards at this lot have learned basic Afrikaans and English. They are overlooked by the people who go to the mall and in one way remind me of the forgotten legion. Spare a kind thought.
