It was pretty intimidating, but I took the day by the utters and MILKED IT! *fist pump in the air* I delivered my very first introduction speech today at one of the Roman Catholic churches this morning completely in IsiZulu (the language I am learning here). My host mom attends there and she just beamed with pride. It's a pretty big deal to house an American apparently and I am the very first in the village; an opportunity of a lifetime. They ...
Wow. I'm so grateful to be living right here, right now, at this moment in time, doing what I love. Today marked my very first day in the province of KwaZulu-Natal ("house/land of the Zulus").

Disembarking is a breeze, we dock at 10:00 and by 10:30 we’re on the road, headed for our next adventure.
... of the garden at our lodge (our next door neighbours came home after an unsuccessful hippo hunting drive to find the hippos between the car and their front door!). I can see why everyone has to stress to you how dangerous they are because you wouldn't think it from looking at them. All the ones we saw seemed very docile and friendly but a lot of people get into trouble when they feel threatened, particularly at the moment while they all have their young with ...
