This is the school I have been teaching at for the last several months. Mabogo means hand in english. The students have about two weeks left until holiday and several exams to take. These students wanted to say hi to America. They are all fascinated with the United States and want to go there but the truth is they probably won't leave Palapye.

Masela Sela

Well I finally got a break and went to South Africa to Madikwe. Here is the three of us. My two new roommates. Emily is the one on the far left and Kelly is the one next to me. It is a Big Five Game park which means they have the lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo, and the elephant. I was able to see them all except for the leopard. It was the first time that I have ever seen a herd of elephants and giraffes. It was a lot of fun even though it rained the whole weekend and we had to get up around 5 am to see the animals. These three giraffes were playing the whole time and even banging their heads against each other's chests. There was over thirty giraffes in the herd.
