I arrived in Johannesburg after two 9-hour over-night flights and was close to death by exhaustion... So when my mom told me that we were staying at this hotel, right next to the airport, I wasn't too excited. All I wanted to do was sleep and recover from the flights, and I was pleasantly surprised upon arriving at the Intercontinental Hotel. It was very quiet in my room - I barely realized the close proximity to the airport because I did not hear a single plane fly over. The room was delightful and the bedding was soft and cozy. Food wise, it isn't very vegan-friendly. I ordered the only vegan dish on the menu, which was a vegetable stew, and they put cheese on the dish... after I asked if they could please ensure the absence of any dairy. But, the bread was good! So, in all, this hotel was perfect to collect and compose myself.

Our guide began to delve into the politics of the township, explaining ...

We woke around 9 9:30 and headed to the campus center. At this point, all of us are here, in the dorm building and bonding with one another. So we walk as a group to breakfast which was provided for us by the International Human Rights Exchange (IHRE) staff. Yesterday we did a workshop about peoples fears and goals/ ...
