Return to South Africa

After 5 months of being back in the United States I'm returning to South Africa to visit for a while. I'm looking forward to seeing Mama, my friends, my organization and the wonderful people in my village. I've been blessed with the opportunity to speak publicly about my Peace Corps adventures and raised over $1000 to provide for the children that are served at Aletuke, the drop-in center I worked with. I'm returning with 99 lbs of donated items which includes 451 pairs of socks, 387 pairs of underwear, 237 washcloths, 10 packs of Crayola markers, 10 packs of Crayola pencils, 15 glue sticks, 200 pencils, 150 pens and a pack of dry-erase markers. My carry-on is stuffed full too leaving me with only a few shirts and a pair of shorts for myself. South Africa here I come.
