    As an HI employee, I always am excited to stay in other Hostelling International hostels. And thankfully, 33 South did not disappoint. The staff were extremely friendly, the vibe was hip and local, and everything was a great value. I definitely met a number of people and could not have been more happy with the experience.

    When you arrive in Cape Town, you're automatically greeted by an airy, stylish airport that feels analogous to having arrived in San Diego, California. As an early side note and general bizarre observation, I've come to realize that you really can tell a lot about a place from their airports. When I look back on Tanzania, Malawi and Zambia, their …

    We rise to another sunny day in CT but a little cooler than the previous day. Today, Chris Hannival is driving us around the Cape, a full day. Breakfast is again very good, this time the special is scrambled eggs on a sourdough muffin topped with slices of smoked salmon, onions and capers! Yeah, this will keep us going a fair while! Chris our driver arrives at 9am and we're off. We are curious to get Chris' perspective on the history of the ...

    Today was the same but different patients. Karlyn and I were paired with different care workers today, Francis and Hiros. We saw 5 different patients from strokes, brain damage from abuse, arthritis, and diabetes. We heard some horrible stories about how one of our patients when in for a bypass after her heart attack and she was told that they were going to take a vein out of her wrist and replace a vein in her left leg. She woke up from anesthesia to find out ...

    ... respect for each other. A great lesson for all of us to learn. As far as our food diary goes, we continue to eat well, whether at restaurants or meals we have prepared here in the house. We are experiencing various game meats including springbok, wildebeest, gemsbok, ostrich, blessbok, and borrowers, plus calamari, and various fish including kingklip and angelfish. Our next adventure took us to Barrydale, a village three hours east of Cape Town, which will be our next entry. Stay ...

    ... hiked back down. Realized we were not going to be able to get a taxi to come to the base of the trail, so we started walking the three miles back to the train station. I was doing all this on about four hours of sleep, so I was pretty exhausted by the end of the hike, and practically sleep walking after we had to do the extra three mile walk. It was all worth it though, a great day.

    On Sunday, a group of us got up and did a 5km ...
