    ... seek work as maids and Nanny's. I've not seen any mistreatment either and I'm not even saying it's all coloured and black South Africans. Some are extremely wealthy and live in huge houses as they were either fortunate enough to get an education or are entrepreneurial. Or are drug or diamond dealers... Who knows! At a petrol station you can see it too. The ones filling up your car are coloured and black and same goes for the people washing your windows as you are getting filled ...

    ... when I, too, have seriously questioned what on earth I was doing. It certainly hasn't been a year-long holiday by any stretch of the imagination. Even though I haven't been anywhere near a hospital, I have undoubtedly learnt so many skills that will be invaluable throughout my career.

    ... scarred still having fun. I had so much fin playing with the kids at the home. They were so happy to see us, play with us, and find the books and school supplies that we brought for them.
