AFRICA. What is it about Africa?
My best friend was in the peace corps stationed in a small, rural town in South Africa. Needless to say, I was on a plane as soon as I could possibly get there. Slept in huts, rode horses on Safari, attempted speaking Zulu, watched elephants eat (all day), argued with cows, ran from ostrich, visited children living with HIV, ate enough Indian to last a lifetime.
To remain 'untouched' after visiting Africa is impossible. I am still partly there.
