Above is a photo of Nomamysi,caretaker of several kids from the monastery, June Walters, the head of the after school program, and myself. We are enjoying the entertainment of the kids putting on their end of term show, including gum boot dancing (kind of like STOMP)but very rich in cultural context, and a re-enactment of the 3 little pigs.
Sarah Jackson is an amazing friend that I have worked and lived and played with over the last 6 months. It is great when you live through an experience and know at the end a lasting friendship has been formed. Cheers to more adventures ahead Sarah Jackson.
Sarah Schafer came to the after school program for her photo journalism class and took some amazing photos. Above are two of over a hundred photos taken.

Well hello to anyone still reading my blog. My parents and sister have been here in South Africa for about 3 weeks give or take. I have been a tour guide and they have taken many pictures thankfully, because my camera is broken. I can tell you that all are safe here and we have had our adventures. Adventures include tours of my work places, an arts festival in Grahamstown, a trip around the southern most tip of Africa. We took a boat out and watched the Southern Right whales out of Cape Aghulus. My father and I climbed up to the top of Table Mountain in Capetown hoping to catch a gondola ride down, however the gondola was closed for the day so had to take the long way down. We are glad to be together as the nuclear family once again.
