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!)

Today was absolutely unexpected yet totally amazing! We didn't really know exactly what we were doing today except touring one of the townships. That is what we did, but we also did so much more! Today was a public holiday called Workers Day so people were out and about more than normal because many of the businesses were closed.

Today we visited the township of Langa, the oldest Black African township in Cape Town. We had two amazing ...
