    ... and more of a groundwork in place, I think they’ll do a great job at helping the youth of South Africa.

    We also got to make a farewell luncheon for our work placement, full of American food like gourmet grilled cheese, chili fries and Coke floats. If I have nothing else to be proud of on this trip, I have that meal to remember. Afterwards, we danced, ...

    ... Our first night here, Marina and John took us to Muizenburg, the area where they have been living for the past six months, so we could experience the Friday night market place.

    ... was the food in my bag, rather than actually resenting my presence, and I had heard that they have learnt the connection between a red bag and food. My bag was red. I took out my camera and prepared to dump my bag if I had to. I wasn't going to risk losing my arm to a massive baboon over a backpack with nothing in.
