About to go to Jo'burg

Cab should be coming any minute to take us to the airport. Should be a nice weekend. We're staying at a bed and breakfast owned by a fellow volunteer's friend's dad. It it supposed to rain so we'll make do.

Had a good week. Finished up my first volunteer placement at a school for the mentally disabled, which was really challenging. Spent Thursday and Friday at Jaime's placement messing around with little kids, which was a lot simpler and more fun. Next week, I'm going to start being a camp counselor with another 18 year old volunteer from San Fran.

Hope everybody has a great weekend!

Hope you are enjoying S.Africa as much as you enjoyed Russia. It has been a while since you posted anything new, which might mean several things : you might be having too much fun or you might be having too little fun or you might be away from the computer . . . Are you coming home for the holidays? My best thoughts and wishes going your way. . . Ms. Bek

Working with the mentally disabled can be very difficult but also very rewarding. It's amazing how many little things ther are that we take for granted. Working with this population opens the eyes to how much we have to be thankful for.
