Actual World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS Day. Since I did Dance Marathon last year at BW (some of you pledged money and donated to pediatric AIDS so that I was able to dance for 12 hours so thank you!) I felt very passionate in being able to be in South Africa for World AIDS Day. I wasn't as involved as I would have like to be but it was still incredible to be here.

This morning we woke up bright and early to go to church in ...

... feel great to accomplish it though. I felt in pretty good shape, surprisingly. However I cannot say I looked good doing it. Parts of the mountain that were straight up and down I found myself nearly crawling as I scaled up. Yikes!! The good part was that the weather was absolutely gorgeous, almost too hot even, with the sun beating down on us nearly the entire climb. The mountain has many days where it’s impassable due to inclimate weather and fog so we got very lucky today. ...

Today is workers day a holiday in South Africa to represent the working class.

Since it was workers day all museums and government buildings were closed so we had a tour through a township. Now townships ...

The city of Cape Town and many other countries were shut down today in honor of Worker's Day. Which is a national holiday here and most businesses, the university and tourist attractions are closed in observance.
SHAWCO arranged for us to spend the day in Lango, South Africa's oldest black township that dates back ...

Today was another good day. We thought we were going to be driving through a couple of the townships.  We actually took a walking tour of Langa, one of the townships in Cape Town.  We started out by meeting a guy named Sabu Mzansi at his house in Langa. His family turned the house into a restaurant in 2008.  Sabu gives tours of Langa, Sabu's mother cooks for the guests, and Sabu's father and cousins play instruments while the guests ...
