PHILIPPOLIS, SOUTH AFRICA FEBRUARY 24: Jaani Cilliers, age 65, plays on his banjo in his living room on February 24, 2009 in Philippolis, in the free state province, South Africa. Mr. Cilliers, an Afrikaner, used to be a sheep farmer but he is now retired and lives with his wife in the village. The small village is one of the oldest Afrikaner villages in South Africa and was a thoroughfare for the old road between Johannesburg and Cape Town.  Most people make a living on farming sheep, as the climate is too harsh for other forms of farming. Most of the people are white and conservative in this area, about 400 miles south of Johannesburg.
