    ... and mountains but no trees. When we stopped at the campground for the final night in the tent, we were all a little peeved that we couldn't just keep driving for 3 more hours until we reached Cape Town. After we put tents up for the final time and headed up to the bar, at that moment we were all thankful we had stopped. The campground was smack bang in the middle of a vineyard.

    I haven't blogged in awhile and a few more exciting things have happened since!

    1. Hillary Clinton visits UWC
    On Wednesday of this past week (nearly a week ago - sorry!), Hillary Clinton came to visit our school and we all received invitations to attend her speech!

I think she is a very strong woman, especially to stand ...

    ... that put him in there and the wardens that kept him in there. We had dinner and a few drinks in the waterfront, apparently the number 1 attraction for Cape Town!

    Unfortunately our time was limited in CT, so the next day we booked to do a city tour on a red bus. Our first main stop off the bus was the District Six museum. District six is an area of CT that was originally established as a mixed community of freed slaves, merchants, artisans, labourers ...
