    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.

    ... feeling in so many ways. There was never any hostility towards me when we walked around the neighborhood, and people were excited to welcome me into their home. For one night, I was able to live in their shoes and see the constant struggle that it is. We did not eat dinner because there was no food and for the sake of a real experience, I decided not to bring money to bail us out. It was good to sit with the local people on their grounds and ...

    Donderdag (from now on I am going to use my limited Afrikaans!)
    I can see clearly now the rain is gone! Whopeeee. This morning I had the pleasure of being in my cousin's grade 6 classrooms. It was really interesting to be in an older classroom and see their interactions with the teacher and each other. There is definitely a clear understanding here that the teacher is in charge and even if the students do get out of hand, if the teacher puts his/ her ...

    After our time at the Christmas party we met up with Jacks friend Sean at a wine bar in Stellenbosch. After a few hours there it was time to head back to Cape Town (an hour drive away).

    When we got back to Cape Town Aimee and CJ came over to Steves and we chilled for the rest of the ...

    ... a little boy screaming wildly while chasing pigeons, and the largest rubber tree I have ever seen. (I'm guessing it's in the family with the rubber plant...it was huge!!) I decided to walk back into the city center and visit an indoor market called the women's craft market. I thought I would specifically be supporting women, but there were men vendors as well.
