South Africa: lonely day

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

Everyone has left the lodge and headed to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years. Yesterday was his 90th birthday. There were quite the celebrations.

I didn't really feel like going so I am still at the lodge. I went to Cocoa Chachi, a gnarly good coffee shop on Lower Main Rd, for coffee and to write. I am sposed to be keeping up with a log that has my thought about the class, public health, etc. It's hard to keep it focused on PH, because I want to talk about my reactions, but I think that the professor who will be reading these isn't very interested in the way that we synthesize our experience other than what has to do with PH or the implications and environment surrounding it.

I think I'm gunna go walk around and photograph stuff. But I don't know what to shoot. I spose I'll just find things. It's finally hot out. It was sunny yesterday and is again today and it's mad good out.

Oh, I put up a few new photos on flickr. Soon more to come. It's just expensive to put them up because I am charged by every MB that I upload. Anyone that wants to see the full collection should let me know when I am back.

Anyhoo, ciao for now.

Outrage!
Art should be free...as well as the Internet. If only.
