Day One of the 3rd Limpopo Writing Project Institute
Today was a fun, packed first day of the writing project. We skyped with both Mashaba and the San Antonio Writing Project 2011 ISI. It was amazing to see the teachers in the US. Really technology is mind-boggling. Then after dinner we had a theatrical performance by the Limpopo students that ended with us singing and dancing to "It's Time for Africa," a happy song. On the back to town, we stopped at the lodge where the teachers are staying. The power had gone out and it was completely dark outside. The sky was filled with thousand of stars that reached across the horizon and seemed to touch the ground. The Southern Sky in winter is spectacular!
