So far so good! I survived the 32 hours of travel and arrived in muizenburg, cape town, south Africa where I'll be for the next 2 weeks. The other volunteers are all really nice and showed me around today. We hiked up lions head mountain and had a great view of cape town and table mountain (the picture above) After that, we headed into cape town and shopped around an open air market where everyone had a special deal just for me :) Didnt buy anything on the first day but some fun stuff to look at for later. After an entertaining train ride with people dancing and singing and no personal space, we got back to muizenburg, got food and learned how/ where to get Internet. It was quite a bit for the first day, but lots of fun. Ended the day just hanging out in the house and getting to know everyone.
This morning a couple of us got up early and hiked muizenburg peak to
watch sunrise. It was really serene. The only sound was of a creek
that followed the trail almost the entire way up. Now we're just
relaxing on the beach. A bit of excitement, the shark alarm sounded
and everyone came scrambling out of the water. A bit like a scene out
of jaws, very surreal that there is a great white just chillin of the
