South Africa

I was living in the country of South Africa (the southernmost country on the continent of Africa) for the 2011-2012 academic year. While there, I posted photos and information about daily life in South Africa, and information about what it's like being a kid growing up in South Africa. I hope you'll visit the site. Although I'm now back in New York, the South Africa site is still active, so you can post questions or comments. Click here to join me in South Africa, or click View South Africa Blog at the top right of this screen.

Here are some links to student work regarding South Africa. I think you'll find them very interesting:

Student Research

South African Consul Visit

Cross-Cultural Exchange USA-SA

These links are also in the sidebar.

      My husband and I live in a different country (for a year) every seventh year. This time we chose to go to the country of South Africa for several reasons. 1) We had never been here before so it would be interesting to learn about the country and its culture. 2) The southern part of the country has a nice climate, so it’s not too hot or too cold where we’re living now. 3) Most of the people speak English so we can communicate with them. 4) We had heard that it’s very beautiful here. It is! 5) The University of Cape Town is here. My husband (a professor of geology) can talk with the university professors here. I am also working with one of the professors at the university for the Fulbright project I’m working on while here.
