Strong woman!
Indian Ocean from my room (20th floor)

Very busy day, professional meetings learning about the culture and history of South Africa, Discussion with the Director of the Department of School Sport (part of the department of Education), Lunch at a fish market (yes i did try something new!), a trip to where Gandhi lived when he was here for 21 years, and a drive around the city of Durban (it's hard to see how some families have to live here.) I will share more tomorrow, enjoy the pictures many more to come. Thanks for all the messages!

What was the fish you were eating? Did you like it. Mary's thinking the smile looks fake. We loved the pictures that you sent. Are you having fun? How big is your hotel and what room are you on? Are the bracelets in safe hand? Have you given any away? Could we see more pictures of the houses they live in? Have you been to the schools and seen the students yet? We want to see more pictures and loved the picture of the ocean. See more tomorrow. We miss you. It's really cold here, what temperature is it there? Mrs. Littlefield's and Mrs. Hill's class, Mrs. Stacy too.

HI Miss Darcy, we were having fun dancing in the gym. We miss you. You should have seen Ben's feet. Ronda will send you the pictures when she figures it out. Carmen

Hi Miss Darcy,
I missed you at PE today. We played poison pumpkin. We got to see Miss Nickerson's baby. Her name is Lilian Rose. I hope you are having fun and see lots of cool
animals. See you soon.
