The Motherland

Internet here in the Motherland is tricky, but we have officially made it to South Africa! We are staying in Mossel Bay until the 28th, and then heading to Jeffrey's Bay.

The country is beautiful, the people have incredible accents, everyone has been extremely friendly and we're enjoying the warm weather!

The culture here is also really fun. So far, we've had a traditional South African braai, sampled ostrich billtong, covered everything in Mrs. Ball's chutney, and watched lots of cricket. We also attended a traditional local church service this morning and were given giant rams' horns as gifts.

This is Africa.


  1. Glad you made it, and we're so excited to stay posted on all of your African adventures!!!! We love yall!

  2. I am one of Sarah Mitchell's friends. She and I attended the same church when she was in Athens. I am actually from S. Africa. Born and raised there. I moved to the US when I was 19 - that was many years ago ;-) Anycase sounds like you're having a fabulous time in a wonderful country. I am from Jo'burg but you are definitely in one of the most beautiful places in the country. SA truly is breathtaking and the people are pretty awesome too. Great reading about all you African adventures. Have fun in J-Bay ;-)
