So its been a week so far that I have been in Cape Town and its been amazing. Got to spend my first birthday in South Africa in over 15 years, and it was wonderful! Got to finally learn how to “Sokkie,” the South African version of two-stepping. It was so much fun, and I was lucky enough to have an amazing cousin that taught me how. Have the chance to spend so much time with my cousins has been great, and just getting the chance to actually get to know each of them is just so much fun! Its been a bit different not having a car to drive around and having to rely on others has been a bit different. Hoping to be able to get a car for the rest of the trip :).
Stellenbosh is such a beautiful city and I have to say that all of the people here have been nothing but overwhelmingly nice and helpful. But I cant forget the food, something I have definitely missed!! I cant wait to spend more time here to get to know the town and the people here more :).
