    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 …

    ... so I had to dump it out, along with my full water bottle. I was definitely on the struggle bus. I placed my stuff on the security belt and proceeded through the metal detector. Nothing went off but I still got frisked. It was awkward and I was not a fan. (I'm sure you everyone is surprised by that.) She essentially violated my woman hood and I'm not sure I'll be the same. We waited for 10 minutes before getting ready to board. Plane ride number two: Chicago ...

    Day 3 - early morning

    From the plane high about the sky I could clearly see from my window seat the one and only……Table Mountain! The gigantic greyish mountain appeared just like everything I had seen in pictures but guess what…..it appeared even better in person!

    We went to the aquarium today and arrived just in time to see the lady in a wetsuit feeding the turtle. When two of the big fishes tried to get some of the food, she and a man nearby in the tank, pushed them away.
    We went to the penguin area and this time spotted the frogs in the tank and also 2 very fat toads lying hidden amongst leaves in their tank.
    I didn't like the sharks and the crabs with the very long legs, so we moved along ...

    ... can see the type of conditions they live in. As we entered the little gate to the creche the children went wild for white hands and white faces. They were just like any other child - so energetic, even though they could not understand our language. Mothers and fathers spent their days working at jobs or selling goods on the street. That day we also visited the memorial where Amy Biehl was killed, though the township no longer exists. We ...
