well where can i start, what a fantastic experience. ane of the most welcoming countries i have ever visited, people cant do enough for you. the food is excellant, the weather is excellant and the breathtaking sights are out of this world. table mountian was brill such an amazing sight of south africa!!!!! the childrens aids orphanage was upsetting but to see the children smiling and happy because we had presents for them was memorable. robben island was very interesting to know how people were treated in prison and how nelson mandela coped. we went to many schools and donated money and computers to most of them all the chgildren were really happy to see us and enjoyed the fact that we wanted to spend time with them . the shanty towns were a disgrace i dont no how people can live in such poor conditions something really needs to be done to help these people noone should have to live like that!!!!!! we met the minister of education who had a lot to say on how he wanted to help the schools to become safer and better places to teach children. a fantastic place and one of the most memorable places that i will ever visit and one that i am hoping to visit again later this year. i have made friends over there that i will never lose contact with. i advice anyone to go there, because its not all terrorism and killing its a fun loving coutry that is in need of help.
