... for some type of trigger to go off. Marion told us to stick around for a couple of minutes, so she could contact the hospital and make proper arrangements for us. The health care workers claimed to hear a gun shot while we were waiting, but we were all oblivious to it. This tragedy had everyone on edge causing us to be unable to go to the hospital as well. We said goodbye to our care workers and headed for the van. It's a shame that our free ...

Two Months in Cape Town Bru

Speaking of cameras, in a room behind the bar, they've got quite a collection of old cameras and some of them are what Rox and I first started using in high school so that was a feast for my eyes.

Cape Town, South Africa!

A travel blog entry by mpledger


... Cape Point, which is the second furthest tip of Africa, so very close to the edge of the world. This experience was to say the least humbling. It helped me personally to put into perspective not only the sheer size of the earth itself, but also the ways in which globalization is making it seem so much smaller.
