But on to the last stop, we went to the oldest microbrewery in Cape Town for 6 more beer tastings. ...

Feeling grateful...

... him up a motivational chant to say to himself when he wanted to smoke. He loved it and I'm praying for him that he uses it. His cough and shortness of breath was so sad. The homes seemed extra smelly and dirty today. Sadly, Carol commented while we were walking that she didn't even realize how filthy the patients were living until listening to us talk. This was a big eye-opener for me because I hadn't realized how our causal conversation ...
