Our journey in South Africa started in Cape Town two weeks ago. We arrived at the airport at 23h00 (more or less) when we got our first news: Charlotte’s baggage was lost (hahaha). Luckily the two people who came to pick us up were really really friendly and helped us with everything. We sorted things out at the baggage claim and started our trip to our host family.

Our host family was a married couple together with their cute dog “Storm”. They welcomed us with open arms and made us feel at home immediately. They were really open and let us taste the real african food (which btw is very spicy).

The rest of the two weeks flew by and we actually forgot to write everything down so now we’re trusting on our brain to reminisce our memories. Our program started at CPUT, a university college in CT, where we met al the other students from South Africa, Finland and the Netherlands. We got a lot of information from all kinds of doctors and lecturers about health and the importance of physical activity. 

During our practical assignment we were divided into groups in which we had to come up with a lesson plan to give to the children of the 4th and 5the grade at Factreton Primary school. I had a lovely experience with these people and already learned so much during these two weeks. To introduce ourselves to every group we all made a site which contained our lesson plan, our goals, the program and a digital storytelling about ourselves.
