Living and Learning in South Africa

I stepped into this exotic world with certain expectations. I anticipate scenes of poverty overlying the stunning landscape that is Africa.

Homeless people huddled under a bridge and hungry children begging in the streets is expected, but nonetheless heartbreaking.

What is unexpected is the love that I find here. A love that flourishes despite hardship and extreme poverty.

A love of country, of the land, and community. In the townships where life is at its worst, love and laughter remain.

There is a strong desire that mirrors my own. A desire to make a better life for their children and hopes for a thriving future for the community they love.

In the people of Africa I have found a kindred spirit, and the knowledge that love knows no boundaries, bows to no master and thrives in the darkest of places.
