... that a different point a couple hundred miles to the East holds that title. Still we had of course to get our picture taken next to the sign that says it is the furthest Southwestern Point in Africa, since that claim still holds true.

On our way out of the park we passed a huge line of cars waiting to get in and we were so glad that we decided to get an early start. We counted no less than 100 cars waiting as we drove by, where as we sat behind four ...

had a one and a half day stay at Capetown so we decided that the best
way to maximize our stay was to use the Hop On - Hop Off Bus. Of
all the cities we had visited, Capetown's Hop On Hop Off Bus gave the
best bang for the buck. At the equivalent of US$15.00 per person,
one can choose between the Red Line, or the Blue Line. For the
equivalent of US$25.00 one can use both the Red Line and the Blue
Line plus the addition of the Canal Cruise.

It was a surreal feeling walking in the exact spot where a man for the first time had sustained life by receiving another person's heart. The wax figures added to the dramatic effect, but still I was draw back by the fact that between those two operating rooms Dr.Barnard carry that heart along the same path I walked, and ...

Trying to catch up cause I haven't been able to write the past few days – it’s been hectic but so much fun! Last Tuesday night, LuAnn, our program director, gave us a quick little lecture on the history of South Africa. It’s kind of crazy because South African history is a lot like the United States, except they are way, way behind us. Apartheid ended in 1990 and the first democratic election was only in 1994, when Mandela was elected president. It’s ...
