July 9: We’re at Penryn College in Nelspruit, South Africa, about a four-hour drive east of Johannesburg. They teach ages Pre-K through 12 here. The township school where we’re working is about 250 kilometers, about a 20 minute drive, from where we’re based.
We travel in vans and cars. The roads are much like our roads in Baton Rouge until you reach the poverty stricken area where the school is located where it becomes a dirt-like road. Our computer lab at the college is about a two-minute walk from our dorm.
The township school is a very small school, and the lab there is located near the front entrance to the school. We took many photos today. When we are able to download them onto a computer, we will get them to you. I do not have time to write about the absolutely unbelievable and amazing experience we had today, but I will do it as soon as I can adequately describe what happened.
