Since last we spoke, I have been around the world and back again. I spent 10 days in South Africa with 48 Sternies and had an amazing time! We started our journey in Johannesburg where we toured the city and visited the Apartheid museum, then went to the Mabula Game Lodge for a two-day safari adventure, and ended up in Cape Town where we explored Cape Point and Table Mountain. My favorite part of the visit was when we visited Velokhaya/The Life Cycling Academy in Khayelitsha in Cape Town. Velokhaya is a non-profit that works “to give underprivileged children in South Africa the skills and the opportunities they need to make a success of their lives“ through cycling. We met the children currently in the program, heard from the founder and alums who have gone on to have very successful lives both on and off the bike, and had a chance to ride around the township of Khayelitsha. You can see pictures from our visit on Velokhaya’s Facebook page.
Until next time,
