The research and preparation for the upcoming trip to South Africa is going well! I’ve found that a number of very nice wines come from the Stellenbosh region. In all seriousness, wine making is one of the regions main employers. I’m looking forward to getting out there now. So far the trip will include a couple of days in Cape Town. After that it will be time to work on developing the links between my school and our partner school. One of the activities I am looking forward to is experiencing the townships. Kayamandi is the large township in the area, although a small township (I’m told around 800 people) has developed on the school playing fields. I think this has been caused by migrant workers who have migrated to the area for a big dam building project in the area. So far lots of Geography!
