Things I Love About South Africa

I love. . .

- when you thank a person they reply with, "it's a pleasure."
- high pressurized HOT showers!
- game parks in the middle of the city
- numerous diverse ethnic food options
- my medevacee friends

While I miss life in Uganda I am also trying to soak up the beautiful things of South Africa. At times they may be superficial but who that's lived in the bush before not appreciated the finer comforts every now and then?

I'm still in South Africa. Yes, 6 weeks later. But things are looking up. I'm almost done with some nasty medicine that's suppose to kill everything once and for all. I still have a long road of healing ahead of me but I should be back in Uganda soon to work on that healing.


  1. i miss you so much.

    calling you soon, for real. we leave for italy wednesday and i am going to call you before that. probs monday.

  2. hey there amanda! hope you're getting better fast. sorry you had to wait 6 weeks. i'm back here in benin and i'm getting my life here wrapped up, saying goodbye to people and putting the intense amount of COS paperwork in order. let me know what you're up to i miss you!
    hugs! -melissa
