3 Dec 2017

Wow, I’m almost done. Two more weeks. One of classes and one that is half my classes then exams. Then I’m on my way home. It’s hard to wrap my mind around. We’re in the time of final projects and wrapping everything up before exams. It feels like it was just yesterday that we were taking midterms and looking forward to going on fall break. Now we’re about to take our finals and are looking forward to doing Christmas at home with out families.I am keeping very busy beyond just the academic madness that always happens with this time of the semester. I planned most of my traveling for these last three weeks of the year. In the course of one weekend I visited both Geneva, Switzerland with another student in the program and also visited my best friend where she is studying abroad in Granada, Spain. After about 8 hours in the airport (never doing that again) and lots of traveling and exploring, I’m happy with all I did this weekend. Hopefully my feet stop hurting soon! Regardless, on I go. Next weekend I’m headed to Italy and of course I need to study for finals and pack to go home! Allons-y!

Home Again

by Naomi Runder

As of now I am back in the United States far away from where I used to be in Cape Town. I'm visiting some friends in Grinnell and settling back into life here. My last weeks in Cape Town were fun but a bit of a blur, going by far faster than I could have anticipated.
