South Africa

South Africa

I don't know if I can call my experience of travel in South Africa divinely inspired but I can absolutely say it was magical. South Africa was one of the best trips I have ever taken, and that is saying a lot. However, it wasn't the obvious parts. Sure, the lions and the giraffes on safari blew my mind. Visiting Robben Island "“ the converted prison Nelson Mandela lived for far too many years "“ was an education. Cape Town is a fantastic city with wonderful views from Table Mountain. For me, it was the Drankensberg Boys Choir, which expertly bridged gaps between African and Afrikaans tradition, the brief but unforgettable moment I shared with 250 elementary school students visiting the Mandela Capture Site Museum. It was my realization of how far South Africa has come socially, and how far we (the U.S.) still need to go. My visit was about possibilities. South Africa is far from perfect but a wonderfully eye-opening one.
