Sawubona (Hello)

Hello Braamfontein! Our first day spent out and about was interesting to say the least. We sat and had coffee at a cafe about four blocks from our apartment and were lucky enough to have these gentleman put on a Break Dancing show! Braam is alive and thriving but sadly it is segregated still. In Australia, some suburbs are suburbs you know not to go, ever. Here in Johannesburg, there are blocks within suburbs you steer clear of, but then the next block over is accommodating and safe. Knowing the streets is very important in terms of safety.

In other news, we are expecting another six days of thunderstorms and for those who know me know just how excited I get during storms! There has not been a lot of rain here lately so everyone is loving the downpour, the current heat wave is record breaking. Let me put it this way, It is so hot and humid that I agreed to watch 'Frozen' with Kellie... seriously who am I? Massive crush on Elsa by the way. Let it go.

Today we are having tea ( what is lunch ) with the Headmaster of Sacred Heart and his wonderful family, in preparation for our Orientation tomorrow.

Kellie and Linn ( Linn is a German volunteer who I met when I was here in August.

Remember every day how lucky you are to have the people in your life, without the two of these beautiful women, this rugged man would not be able to make it through this journey.
