... on a formerly unused highway off ramp.

We had the chance to walk around all the different markets
(we saw the bead market and Indian Market before) and take in all the local
fare. Things are cheap here, a bushel of bananas is about five rand and most

It's purple and pink and neatly organized in date numerical order and has MY BOARDING PASSES in it. Stop! Retrace my steps and realize this poephol has left it on the back of the toilet downstairs!

... and help them with their assignments. They sat 4 to a table according to grade level. (There was a total of 28) What we witnessed was incredible to me. They all sat quietly, helping each other with reading without prompting from the teacher, so eager to learn. Their notebooks were very neat. No fooling around, no teasing, no speaking loud.
