Although it took some trials and tribulations to finally get here, the experience has already been so great it's indescribable. We haven't even begun doing what we came here for! It's just humbling to actually be here and experience and see what we've been learning about in Minneapolis, when it seemed like we'd never get here. But it's real life and we are actually on the continent of Africa, even though it feels like a dream! Like I'm sure others have said, pictures just do not do Cape Town justice. It's beautiful! Table Mountain is almost everywhere you look, and you can see the ocean, cityscape, and mountain all at the same time! Is it just me or is that completely unreal?
But we've just scraped the surface. We have yet to see the REAL South Africa: the biggest effects of Apartheid. That's going to be an eye-opener.
I'm excited to get going with the class and service-learning. This experience has barely begun and we have everything still in store for us. This group of people I came with is amazing and I'm excited to learn with and from everyone! Our first class is in just a few hours! We also start service-learning this week! So there will be much more to come!
