Well after about 30 hours of traveling I am finally in Cape Town. It only took four planes; a stop near D.C, Dakar Senegal and Johannesburg SA before arriving here is this so far amazing city. We took South African Airlines, which I would highly recommend. The food would be A class airplane food in my mind- my food ranged from blueberries, pineapple to brownies and kit-kats, scrambled eggs, sausage and so much more. I slept a lot of the plane rides but when I wasn't sleeping they had a screen per seat that consisted of blockbuster films such as The Help, Water for Elephants and Horrible Bosses- I watched those three but there was about 50 more movie titles to choose from. Along with movies I listened to CDs they had ranging from Justin Bieber to Adele to Keith Urban.
Last night after we arrived and everyone had collected their items from baggage claim we met with the InterStudy leaders who drove us to our houses. I am in house 14 with eight other girls. Outside my bedroom window I have a garden, which at the moment is bright and sunny and making me very excited to go outside. The temperature is mid seventies.
The plan for today is having an orientation with InterStudy, walking around the area and going to the grocery store, getting a tour of the campus and then we have the evening off.
I am so excited to be here and to be off a plane for the next three weeks! So many exciting adventures are awaiting to happen!
