Message from the Editor Elsa Van Ginkel: “Marion has been treating us well these past few months, the team is slowly becoming a family and we are truly looking forward to the rest of our overwintering period. I hope that this first edition of The Wanderer will keep you entertained! Enjoy.”
And Co-editor Tankiso Moso: “It is indeed a blessing and an achievement to be here. It has also been a great time so far: learning the work, getting to know each other as a team and getting used to the M79ers family. It’s going to be a good year!”
