Final night in Cape Town/ back home
I could not believe it was the last day. I woke up and got ready to head out to Boulders beach to go see some penguins. We took the train there and it was fun looking out the window and realizing how beautiful a place could be, and how much I would miss it. It was also sad because our time had finally come; it was all happening to quick. As we tried to make it to Simons town, we ran into a pickle, first we had made it to the last train stop, but we still had to get on a different one to make it to Simons town. We had asked someone for help and they told us to go stand on the other side of the track, and that the next train would take us. So we did, the most hilarious but disturbing thing happened. A little girl walks by and with long hair. Carla busted out that is the youngest weave I have ever seen. It was funny because the girl that was about four had long weave in. Besides the little girl, we had gotten on the wrong train. We noticed that when the train starting going back the way we had come. Therefore, we got off and got on the right train. We made it to boulders beach we saw some penguins. It sucked because it was raining but it was all good. We went and ate some lunch at this nice place. After that, we headed back towards Cape Town so we could finish last minute shopping at the Green Market. We were late to circle but we still made it. After that, we prepared for our last Braii. It was great seeing everyone there and having a good time. We ate delicious food and had fire going outside. It could not get any better. After taking a bunch of pictures with everyone, a few of us headed out Down Town. It was a great night. The next morning was not so great though. I was tired and not ready to leave. Jessica T, Carla, Natalie, Curtly, Mikalya, Marika and I headed out to what would be our last breakfast in Cape Town. It was great eating with all of them. I hope we could do it again. We left the restaurant and headed to our houses to get our luggage. We said bye to everyone and headed out to the airport. It was unrealistic, just like the day we had arrived. I could not believe we were in South Africa. That is how I felt when I got to the airport. Are we actually heading back home? After a long long plane ride we had made it to Washington, where had some problems trying to get everyone on the plane. Some of the students were stuck at customs still; we could not find two of the students. Everyone was wondering if they would make it on time. However, in the end everyone managed to make it. We arrived to Minneapolis; I was at shock because I could not believe I was back home. I know I will miss everyone that was on the trip. I cannot wait to go back. We all need to get together and relive this wonderful experience.
