I arrived in Cape Town on Friday evening. They have been having rolling blackouts in the city and the power was off when I arrived at the house where I will be staying. There was no one else home and no matches or lighter for the candles, so I just went to bed.
I did a bit of exploring this weekend and met my housemates and some of the other interns from Oregon. My housemates are two girls - one from Denmark and one from Germany - and a guy from Canada. They all seem very nice so far.
My first day at the internship site was yesterday. So far I am just observing. It is a fast-paced, interesting environment!
