From Erin Sio:
It’s raining this morning–our last day in Cape Town. Today we will visit our schools for any final work on projects and to say goodbye. We have a farewell dinner with host families tonight. The kids are sad about leaving.
We leave for the airport very early tomorrow morning for our 7:30am flight to Johannesburg. Once there we will have a tour of Soweto and lunch at a shabeen. Afterward we will spend a few hours at the Apartheid Museum which is an intense experience. We will do some last minute shopping for souvenirs at an open market and finish the day having dinner at the home of GS alum Chinezi Chijioke. He collaborated on a school called African Leadership Academy (ALA) which provides high school education for anyone from the continent who wants to learn business, leadership, economy and entrepreneurship in addition to a traditional curriculum. Several students from ALA will join us for dinner at Chinezi’s house.
Friday morning we’ll leave bright and early for Kruger National Park. Along the way we’ll visit the Blyde River Canyon which is spectacular. We’ll have a game drive on Friday night and all day Saturday in open vehicles.
Let’s hope the rain stops.
