Well, here I am. Being a student who studied abroad in China, and wanted to go to a specific college because of it's amazing Chinese program, I never thought that in my senior year I'd be venturing to South Africa. Things change don't they? I'm a global citizen, I want to see the world and all of it's cultures. I'll take it one continent at a time.
On February 15, I'll be on a plane flying to Cape Town, South Africa with a group of students fro my town, where I'll be staying with a host family for ten days! Though it has been a hectic week (academically) for me as I make up tests and get in all my work before I go, this life changing experience will be very much worth it. I can't wait!
I will be using a journal, but will also use this blog to the best of my ability and access to keep family, friends, and colleagues updated about what's happening. Cape Town is one of the most wired cities in the world, I will do my best. If I can't post everyday, then I'll have stories to tell once I return!
Now, to finish reading Sula by Toni Morrison for my English class, and to finish packing!
