I arrived in Cape Town on Friday evening aroun 9:00. They have been having rolling blackouts here due to power shortages, and the electricity was off when I got to the house where I will be staying. No one else was home, so I just went to bed.
I did some exploring over the weekend and met my housemates and some of the other interns from Oregon. My housemates are a girl from Denmark, a girl from Germany, and a guy from Canada. They all seem very nice so far.
Yesterday was my first day at my internship site. I have just been observing so far. It is a very fast-paced and interesting environment!
