Now that I've been here for well over a month, I thought I would rehash my experience so far through photographs. We began our experience in January with training in Pretoria:
|School observation with some of our team during our orientation.|
|Recently constructed Madiba statue at the capital building.|
|Quality bru time before we parted ways to head to our placements|
Durban has been my location since then, and I'm not angry about it.
|Durban City Hall|
And the dichotomy of the lifestyles here is staggering.
|The township of Umlazi, located just south of Durban.|
But the best perk of living here is teaching at Zwelibanzi Highschool.
|The morning commute|
|Doing math with my bro's, Sthembiso "Gift", Nhlakanipho "Slugs", and Mzwandile "Mr. Pass on it." They came to school early to throw some formulas around.|
|Christina and I are the first two Fulbrighters ever to teach at Zwelibanzi. We've been blazing trails and collecting sweet gear.|
|The girls teaching me some Zulu and South African history. I shouldn't have favorite students, but Pinky (on the right) definitely makes me laugh the most of all of them.|
We were nomads for part of february traveling between backpacker's lodges and bed & breakfast inns while waiting to find a place to live. The original housing the embassy selected fell through, but the place I ended up getting instead will do. I hope I can entice some of you to consider a visit this year.
