South Africa: landing

posted by Brett - he traveled to South Africa during July and August of 2008 for hands-on experience in public health, one of his concentrations at NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study




So if Delta didn't make mistakes, there wouldn't a business class. I'm happy to be their mistake! I got upgraded to business class for that intense flite, yo. Amazing.

Anyhoo, I have to pay for internet here, what?! So things mite be concise but I hope the pictures look ok!

Well it looks like at the moment I'm having trouble uploading photos here, so you can go to my flickr to see more: flickr.com/people/brettmayfield.

I went grocery shopping, read tons about abortions and HIV, am getting geared up for out 5am start tomorrow to hike up table mountain; we are planning a shark dive, and people are pretty much cool. God I love so many public health nerds. People are from Texas, Las Vegas, New York, and some random elsewheres.

It's cool here, but not too cold; flannel and a hoody makes me happy and fine.

I like my lodge, the freeland lodge and listening to people is awesome. Lots of codeswitching between languages.

I think that's all...?

Guess I'll talk with y'all soon. Ciaooooo!
