Cooking, Eating, Class, Jazz, Sleep :)
Cooking meals for about 400 or 500 people at Afrika Tikkun was great. We had a couple tears thanks to the onions. However, the gist of this for me was enjoying spending time with some of my new friends that I had met. We all fooled around while in the process but it was all great. Some of the others helped paint one of the offices, and organize a storage room. After a great day in the morning, we finally had the chance to try the food we had prepared. It was good. The time had finally came it was time to head out to Gugguleto where we were going to have a Braii at Mzolis, an excellent restaurant that was in the township. Before we left though Anthea had told us that we would all be eating out of the same bowl, I was hesitant when she had said this. In my mind, I thought that it was not a great idea to have all 26+ of us put our hands in this bowl full of food. In the end, it was not bad. We all had fun and ate delicious food. I also bought a shirt that said South Africa and that completed my shopping list, at least for me. After many pictures and giggles with the food, we headed out of Gugguleto, and the next thing on our list for that day was of course class. I enjoyed class that day. We talked about not forgetting what we had experienced in South Africa and ways in which we could contribute back to our community at home and Afrika Tikkun, and Educo. In the evening, we went to a jazz bar. It was the first time I had gone to a Jazz place. I enjoyed hearing the music and it made me feel relaxed. After a long and exciting day, it was finally time to head back home.
