You will notice each other: no matter the hue of your skin or the lilt of your accent. Perhaps it is a longing in our eyes, or the curve of our spines where they take root in our soil. Africans traveling gravitate toward Africans. Our souls call out to one another, despite our warring ancestors.

Rebel Heart Tour in NYC!

A Big Apple A Day…!
I can totally go without sleep for a few nights in order to soak up as much as possible. Jet lag? Doesn’t matter, I work 24 hour shifts anyway 😉

Interns’ Weekend Getaway to Morgan Bay
I just had such an incredible weekend with a few of my fellow interns. At the beginning of the year, a second year intern told us, “If you have the weekend off, please don’t stay in town. Go do something!” So we did.
Conversations in Zambia
THEM: Where are you from?
ME: South Africa
THEM: Oh, we are neighbours! I will give you neighbour-price!
