We actually slept in for a change... 8:30 a.m. is late for us these days. There were other guests at the Casablanca so our host Betty had breakfast food already prepared. There were breads, cereal, fruit, cheeses. Betty offered to fix us bacon and eggs, but we passed since we decided on an early lunch.

We chatted with Betty a bit about …

... uninterested as you can imagine.

As well as failing to support their children academically, there is another problem concerning parents that comes up time and again. Every Friday is casual wear day, to raise funds for the school. Every child that wears casual clothes pays R3 (around 15p), and it is completely optional. Originally this struck me as sad, as it labels those too poor to pay the R3, but it appears no shame/teasing goes on. However, every ...

... sad, and I can't even imagine how living with that constant fear and guardedness might seep into my soul, for lack of a better word. We have been in South Africa during the beginning of Oscar Pistorious' trial, and somewhat sensationalist news about each day's proceedings pervades all media in the country. Regardless of one's thoughts on Pistorious' culpability, however, last year's tragic incident prompts you reflect on the complicated realities of what ...

... He hopes to use this as a way to help the kids see there is a much bigger picture than what they know. I thought that was pretty cool.

One of my classmates, Angel, and I also wandered into this museum of Stellenbosch’s history. We stuck around the free stuff in the opening area and got to see artifacts from the past, hundreds of years old. Everything here has a story, so being somewhere like that can be very overwhelming but equally gratifying. I also got ...

Cape Town, Wine Tasting and Cape Tour

A travel blog entry by kcullivan

... except for the cheesy Hop on Hop Off (HOHO) Bus tour. The lack of public transportation and safety issue made for a challenging first fee days. I did get to explore a bit on foot during the day to see some of the major sights. The first day I walked around town a bit and down to the Victoria and Alfred waterfront. It reminded me of San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf but classier. The second day I gave in and bought a two day HOHO bus pass and stopped off at various sights ...

    We had a 6 a.m. flight to Johannesburg and wanted to stay close by so my husband chose the Road Lodge for it's location. After having to wait an unacceptable time to check-in we went directly to our room. It was dull and not very clean. If you wanted dinner you had to call our for it or go to the airport. I asked if there were different rooms available and was told they were all the same. I noticed a sign that they were remodeling, but they never offered a better room if any. Needless-to-say, I would not recommend it. I also overheard several clients complaining as well.

    Chose this hotel as close to airport. (Dropped off here by a very kind Hertz rental guy.)
    Receptionist just doing her job and no extras. Room tiny and basic. Not sure where you were supposed to have dinner as seemed to be only breakfast available - thank goodness we had scraps left from our food rations. No restanurants nearby that we saw.
    Didn't bother next am with expensive breakfast and had it at airport.
