We almost didn't get off the ship in Mauritius. We arrived 12 hours late due to weather so we were going to only stop to refuel. Everyone was pretty upset but then SAS was able to work things out and we ended up getting 4 hours on the island the day after we were scheduled to be there. 4 hours is a pretty short amount of time to explore an entire country. Here's what I saw:

I was going to go hiking but we didn't have time.

University of Cape Town

While in Cape Town I visited the University with friends. The campus is beautiful:

I'm pretty sure Built Environment is code for Potions lab

They had rugby club and they let us participate

Table Mountain

One of the first things I did in South Africa was hike Table Mountain with some friends.

I climbed this!

This one is me trying to look sad in front of Table Mountain. It gives you a better view of the top.

We took this trail. It took us 2 1/2 hours.

The group I climbed with. (From left to right: me, Patrick, J'emily, Ashley, and Peter)

I stole my friend Mike's idea of a shoe self-portrait

What it looked like to me

I enjoyed it so much I actually climbed it again, this time with my friend Josh.

Photo Critique

I had my photo from the slave dungeon in Ghana critiqued by Brian, the SAS photographer. After his feedback I re-edited the photo. What do you think?
