Be the Cause


Today I…
Had a “Healthy Breakfast”
Ran to the edge of South Africa (Cape of Good Hope)
I swam with penguins… (well, it was too cold so the penguins were on the rocks)
Got a “lova” letter from a little boy at the HOKISA home
Had a filling South African – Indian Dinner
Reflected on our hectic, well-organized and limit-pushing trip
Now, it’s midnight… I need to…
Go back and pack for Durban tomorrow!

We’ve reached!!!

We’ve reached South Africa and from the plane flight to this second complete day, we’ve reached and connected with so many people. During the long flights (4 hours to Atlanta, and then 20 to Cape Town), BTC was all over the plane, sitting next to strangers. Of course, by the end of the flight, we had even more friends. Mahsa was given a donation from the person sitting next to her, we inspired several folks (Hi Trevor! – My seat neighbor who I managed to talk to tears), and so many others who gave us advice and shared experiences. It was a long flight… but a good indication of the trip we had ahead of us. (By the way – we managed to get the 20 bags/boxes full of “gently used clothing, etc” with only minor questions – so thank you all, the donations are going directly to people who appreciate it!
