I have only a few hours left in Cape Town and decided to head down to Long Street from my hostel, as I have done, alone, several times since staying here.  Today's experience, however, was a bit different. On the short jaunt down the hill the 4 small ... Read more >

Preparing for the trip

SOUTH AFRICA | Tuesday, 22 Sep 2009 | Views [410] | Comments [4]

Some of my friends & family have expressed an interest in keeping up with my little trip to Africa, so I thought I'd start this journal.  Okay, so it wasn't a formal request or anything...I guess the more likely reason is that I'm a self-indulgent ... Read more >
