I have been having the most amazing time since I have returned to Cape Town. I have been trying to get some studying (I have to take the GRE when I get home) while still making the most of my time here. I ended up changing my ticket (again!!) to give myself an extra two weeks here. I just couldn't bear the though of leaving South Africa while my visa was still good. So, my stay has been extended. I have been hanging out a lot with my friend Jess (though she is gone at the moment to Scotland for a world youth conference) Charlie and my "brother" Mat. The family that I am staying with is absolutely wonderful. I love hanging out with them and making dinner with "mom" we have been trying lots of recipes so that I will be able to make a good South African meal when I do finally go home.

I got together with the road trip crew twice since being back. The first time was an evening of indulgence; we met at Pannorattie's for a pizza eating contest. I defiantly had my fare share pizza though I could not come close to the amount the boys ate. We got together again for a braai at Craig's house to watch a slide show of the pictures and the video from road trip. It was great to see everyone again though rather nostalgic. I love this group of people and it about broke my heart to have to say good bye because I knew that I would probably not ever see them all together like this again. We had a great time looking at pictures and reminiscing on our times together, what a night!!!

I have been going on lots of little adventures around the Cape, driving around the city and playing on the beach. I got to watch Charlie play rugby in Stellenbosch and then walked around the town with Jess. I went with Jess and her family to a wine farm called Speir and had the most divine lunch, complete with traditional African face painting and dance and a ton of food.

I went up Table Mountain again, this time with Mat (my "brother") Kat (My old roomie) Wendy (my "sister") and Simon (a friend of Mat's). We had a great time and I was completely exhausted by the end of it. I got some great pictures and really enjoyed the climb.

We took Kat the airport yesterday evening. It was sad to see her go, I am the only one left now. Kind of strange though appropriate I guess. I was the first to arrive and will be the last to go. Going to the airport was weird as the last time I was there was when I first arrived and I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

I think that is about it for now, I am still trying to catch up on entries from road trip. It is a slow process but I am working on it. Hope all is well at home!!
