This week has been crazy at the office where I'm working. The French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, and his new wife (and about 150 other people) are in South Africa for two days. African Eagle (the tour company) made most of the travel arrangements for their surprise visit. Things will probably be a bit less chaotic next week after they leave!
Last night I went to a famous restaurant called Mama Africa with several of the other American interns and some friends. It's pretty touristy and definitely overrated, but it was still fun. There was a very good band playing.
Tomorrow is the last day of February, so I've been here one month. At times it has seemed to go slowly, but mostly it's flying by. I'm just about halfway through my internship. After next week I will start working with a different person in the office who focuses on marketing Grassroute Tours (township tours) specifically.
This weekend I have a full-day wine tour planned for Sunday. My housemate Marion is going to go with me as part of my free "educational" tour. I've only spent a brief amount of time in the winelands so far. It will be great to see more. We'll also see Victor Verster, which is the prison from which Nelson Mandela was released.
