Forgive my lack of writing tact but we dont have a lot of time on the internet!
–Woke up and had a good African Breakfast
–Drove an hour outside of Durban to the Safari with Mr. Tommy our tour guide
–Ate a picnic lunch at the park
–Loaded up all ten of us in one jeep for a 2 hour Safari
–Saw a ton of different animals and everyone came back in one piece!
–Got taught some basic Zulu (language) by our driver.
–Got a tour of the Durban “Townships”. These are the very poor pockets of people living in “shanty towns” just outside the city. Our Driver Mr. Tommy grew up in the Township and explained to us how they were formed and how the poverty was intentional developed during the last century of segregation. We dont have a lot of pictures of this because we were already ticking out and we wanted to be very respectful. This shook our group pretty good and we had a great debriefing time tonight and digested the cause of how we were feeling and how it relates to our lives.
–Met up with the rest of the World Vision Comrades team and the World Vision South Africa staff at a pre-race dinner! Pretty special as our kids were introduced and bragged upon!
–Had a great debriefing time and we are ready to experience and support the runners at the Comrades tomorrow!
