Jan Taljaard


Born in France to parents in the diplomatic service, I was privileged to see a lot of the world and have been lucky to live in many countries including South Africa, Belgium, Greece, Spain, India, Pakistan, Switzerland, France, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Italy. Which is why I speak six languages fairly fluently and understand but can’t speak another three.

I say these things not to brag, but to help you, the reader, understand how all this helped me have quite a broad view of the world, society at large and to see things the way I do.
