I left my house at 5:45 am on Friday morning and I arrived in South Africa 3:00pm Saturday (local time). The whole ordeal took… soo long! To say it was an experience is an understatement. When I first got to the JFK airport the song “Sleepin in” by the Postal Service… Check it out it was crazy. Once I got on the the plane I read Amanda’s letter to me. Thank you sooo much and I took your advice and wrote down what I was thinking. I ended up filling up like 9 pages of my ‘journal’ already. I’ll tell about more of the ride but we (me and the other volunteers from London, England, Canada, Brazil, Germany, and of course the random assorted US locations) are going out to the ocean. A lot of the volunteers have alrady been here for weeks or months so they know all the good stuff to do. I’ll be back to post later with some awesome pictures. For now I’ll leave you with my favorite part of the whole trip.
